I went out and voted early this morning before work. The poll place was jammed with people and it was the first time that I had seen it that packed, at any time of day.

I don’t know what it is but everybody seemed to be very upbeat today. On the streets, in the polling place, in the coffee shop, everyone seemed to have a smile and a good word. I guess it is that feeling that the country might finally turn a corner on the past couple of years.
