We’ve had a pretty light blogging schedule for the past week, and that’s likely to continue, as we are visiting my family in Kentucky, USA.
Today is Election Day in the states, and we’re not shy about voicing massive support for Senator Obama. We went into the city of Lexington today, and found an Obama headquarters where we met some cool people and picked up some gear. The polling places that we drove by all looked peaceful and calm, although the lines were sometimes pretty long. Kentucky is probably going to go to McCain, but the people we encountered were either quiet, or enthusiastically for Obama.
HolaValencia.net Endorses Barack Obama
We might be looking at a landslide, here, but I won’t stop biting my fingernails until results start to come in — starting in just 3 hours!
Apologies for using this space to talk about something which has nothing to do with Valencia, but the truth is that this election has global implications. And we’re just too damn excited. Obama’s candidacy is historic. Not only is he by far the better choice for the presidency, but his victory would be such a gigantic step forward for the USA, it’s hard to understate.
Oh man, I’m so nervous. If the unthinkable should happen, and McCain somehow pulls it out … I don’t know what I’ll do.
And we promise to get back to a more steady blogging schedule soon, once we return to Valencia.
Interesting side note: there’s been a noticeable uptick in visits to our post about the Valencian Barraca. Apologies to those looking for the good senator!
