I Voted

I voted today in the much anticipated Potomac Primaries. Turnout was like I've never seen it before. Considering this is a primary election, that is pretty amazing! People were parking on the grass way out far from the polling station.

I was absolutely torn between voting Democratic for Obama or voting Republican for McCain. I want to see neither the Clintons nor Huckabee in the running come November.

There's lots of strategy that could be employed here: Vote for the person you'd most like to run against in November (Clinton if you're a traditional conservative, Huckabee if you're a Democrat). Ultimately, I decided to vote for Obama, since McCain seems a lock. Happily enough, Becky was pretty anti-Huckabee, so I think she'll cast her lot with McCain.

All in all, I can't be more pleased than that. It's sort of like I got to vote for both candidates.
