Waiting for the Electoral College

Electoral college vote watchers are predicting that, as of now, Kerry has exceeded the 270 target by a healthy 24 votes.

I want to relax and believe it, but anything can happen in 11 days. Anything.

Early voting is a blessing, as it relieves you of the pressure of last minute preposterous manipulations, nasty tricks and slanderous, untruthful advertising. You have no further control. Your part is done.

Ron and I have cast our ballots for John Kerry, and pray daily that our country will return to integrity, compassion and fairness....return to our forefathers' vision of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all men and women of our nation, rather than Bush's aristocracy with freedoms and vast privileges for few, and an ever-decreasing quality of life for the masses. And a return to respect for all people of faith, not just a narrowly-proscribed ultra-conservative fraternity.

The waiting is hard.
