Nothing could disappoint me today
"I hope you're not disappointed," a nice woman said as she handed me my Democratic slip to hand to the man at the voting machine.
"Nothing could disappoint me today," I said.
Then I went into the booth & voted for an African-American man who might become the President of the United States rather than a white woman who might become the President of the United States. The "X" next to Obama lit up red. I had thought, until last week, I would be voting for a white, male, southern liberal.
When I exited the booth, I said to the older fellow who had taken my ticket, "I don't know if you can imagine how enjoyable that just was." But I think he did. I think they all knew how special this primary election day was on the Democratic side.
(Rutgers women beat UConn, the #! ranked team & like the Patriots formerly undefeated & just as smug.)
