*I’m out here in Phoenix on business and my hotel just happens to be the hub for the Democratic election watch party.

The lobby was crackin’. Special election drinks were being served, all kinds of unexpected characters were in the building. Excuse my ignorance, but I didn’t expect to run into as many gays and Blacks as I did simply because I was in what I think is one of the most conservative states in America (on the verge of becoming its own country).

Anyway, I chatted with a few Democrats in the building, most of which were excited of course, to see the numbers favor Obama over the course of the night.

It’s been a tough election for everyone, watching as both candidates battle it out for the presidency (I’m totally not ignoring the fact that Roseanne Barr and a few others were also up for the presidency – I’m just focusing on the major competitors).
