I thought the polls were going to be open until seven.
So I knew I'd make it just in time to cast my vote and be counted.
I get there at 6:20 spot on. I go inside and...
The polls closed at six.
Damn. Imagine my disappointment.
I drove home, bummed about being left out of doing my part.
It lasted about five minutes.
Because as I was pulling into the garage McCain was giving his concession speech.
It was over.
Obama didn't need my vote.
No time to be sad.
Only time to celebrate change.
