We turned Indiana blue! Whoo-hoo!

One story from my mil, working the polls in TN-- a guy was voting and called over the other poll worker for help. He asked of Lamarr Alexander, "is he white?" The poll worker proceeded to tell him who Alexander was, and said yes, he happens to be white. The guy said he only wanted to vote for white people, and that was why he was Republican-- because Republicans only had white candidates. But then with a name like 'Lamarr', he wasn't sure and just had to doublecheck.

*sigh*

Some things will never change.

But today I'd like to savor the notion that all things are possible.

It's still sinking in, the enormity of this victory.
