I voted today in Austin at a church, which my husband and I remarked about the irony of there being separation of church and state, but then again, this is Texas. It felt really good voting a straight Democratic ticket, from the President, and all the way down. It also felt great voting for Keith Hampton for Judge, and Paul Sadler for the U.S. Senate. I voted for most of the propositions on the ballot, and hopefully we'll get the proposition for the medical school in Austin to pass!

Tonight, we'll be watching the election returns at my relatives' house. I'm hoping it's a very short night, and not a long night to knowing that President Obama has been re-elected for a second term. The one thing that I really want to see on TV tonight is the very SAD FACE of Mitt Romney conceding the presidential race. That will be the definite topper on my cake :-)

May this sad face be one we all see on TV tonight!

What are your plans for tonight? Hunkering down at home? Celebrating with friends? Or just generally holding your hands over your eyes and waiting to see the next morning's papers?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
