It's just about 1am, and it looks like Bush will be re-elected. Ohio still hasn't been called. Florida has a bunch of contested absentee ballots.
When I went to vote this morning, I waited in line for 30 minutes. Previous times, I was always done in 2 minutes. So many people were out this year. Almost everyone had something to say and was going to vote. How is it possible that the country is still so completely divided? How is it possible that taking the division into account, people don't consider that maybe it's time to go on a different path?
You can be consistent, but it doesn't make you right. I honestly don't know what the next four years will hold for us and the rest of the world if the results hold. If Kerry wins, I wouldn't know what the future would hold, but I also wouldn't be absolutely ill thinking about it, either.
Like so many other people I have been talking to, I just don't get how we had this chance and now it's gone.
