Election Madness!

Oh man, we have a new president!

I wasn't super-intense about either candidate, but I will say that Obama's speech was amazing. But his speeches are always amazing. I can't even begin to understand how he can be such an amazing public speaker.

While I was excited for the national election, I was really anxious for results of local elections back home. And thanks to the time difference I had to wait for FOREVER. But now some of them are being posted on certain news websites! YEA.

Okay, let me just say that I will be really unhappy if the Willamina School bond fails by 20 votes. 20 votes!!! I will be so disappointed in people!

When it comes to the race for Senate back home in Oregon, it's been a vicious one. But I definitely wholeheartedly support Gordon Smith. Basically he's a moderate who's actually accomplished things in Congress that are good for the nation and Oregon (like timber payments making their way back to counties of origin! Yea! Thank you Senator Smith!). I met him at our state FFA convention last year, and he's also a really nice guy. Here's how the race looked a few minutes ago:

I really hope that you all voted, if you could vote.
