You all knew this was coming.

And I refuse to gloat. I will share these awesome cartoons, though.

They totally encapsulate what you should be feeling right now. Excitement and pride – in being an American and in being alive at an incredibly important time in history. I, for one, cannot wait to see what the future holds but I do believe something that might annoy other people…

YES WE CAN.

Interesting Texas stats:

Texas statewide turnout of voters in 2008, in millions: 13.6
Turnout in 2004, in millions: 7.4
Margin by which McCain won Texas in 2008: 11.8%
Margin by which Bush won Texas in 2004: 24%
Margin by which Obama won Travis County (Austin): 30%
Other major counties in Texas that Obama won: Dallas, Harris (Houston), Bexar (San Antonio)
Number of these counties that Kerry won in 2004: 0

The overall voter turnout number is OUTSTANDING. I am so excited. 🙂
