I watched a little of the election results. The time change works hard on this body--it never used to be noticeable until the last two years. Though I started yawning at 8:30, I went to bed around 11:30. My eyes no longer wished to cooperate.
I did turn the clock radio on around 2 a.m. and I heard McCain's concession speech, as well as Obama's victory speech. Some notables were that both Ohio and Virginia, both strongly Republican presidential voters (though we frequently have Democratic governors), and New England has not one Republican senator House Seat (Thanks Glenn!).
I have just one hope: That our country will come together and put their collective shoulders against the massive wheel that needs to be moved. And I would make that statement regardless of who was elected last night.
