At the polling place earlier this week I was the only African American
in the long line. My Chicago suburb is 90% White and Republican.
The stares I got during the 50 minutes in line gave me the creeps!
But I was so proud to cast my vote for President-Elect Obama...and
then run the heck out of there..LOL.
I thought for sure that Obama would carry Texas, but that big state has
been awarded to McCain. The Bush family must still be popular there.
At least George W. can retire in Texas knowing that they still love him.
