Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

Romney's gonna win Virginia.....so will George Allen republican for senate.....the only reason Obama has a chance in Virginia is because of Richmond...Petersburg and the small section of northern VA where the LIBS from Wash DC live.....

I voted at 9:30 this morning. There were 10 people in front of me and more coming in after I left. The other poling place in town was crowded. Parking around the corner and on the road, standing in line around the building, waiting in the snow and rain mix we have had this morning.
Most of the people I heard, were also talking about seeing Romney win as a positive.

Obviously you're not that intimidating. So I guess yes, would be his answer.

My wife and I just voted--we waited until later in the morning so we could cover several errands at once. Tiny precinct, but looked to be steady. There will be a lot more once folks that work regular hours clock out.

Rural here too. expected long line and brought wheelchair. Went to look for a parking spot(you know those postage stamp lots) at 2:15 and had no wait! Clerks said it had just thinned out. Thanked them all in turn. After last election i was going to propose a potluck for the wait.

I just came back from the polls and nobody else was there. I did enjoy a home baked cookie and muffin along with some coffee while there. I am sure our state will give it to Obama but at least I know there was one vote he didn't get. I hope the rumors of a huge turnout are made up of people who ordinarilly don't vote wanting to make sure we will get new leadership for at least the next 4 years.
