The lines stretched all the way from PS6, around the block to Church Street, where I began my hour long wait at 7:25(ish). I have never been so happy to wait on line. This is my third presidential election, but the first time I have ever been inspired by my choice. People are excited. The air is buzzing. I can't believe how much energy this election is creating. I feel like I am walking through downtown Pittsburgh after the Steelers won the Super Bowl....


School kids rode past on their buses, chanting "OBAMA! OBAMA!" And nearly everyone who left the polling station was smiling and excited!


Finally, at 8:45(ish), I got into the booth, pulled the lever and cast my vote for Barack Obama!


Now, I am going to read portfolios and wait to meet my students on line at 7 to chat as the results come in...
