Four Years Is A Mighty Long Time

I'll have more to say comparing 2008 and 2012 later in the week.  Too much going on with 2 sick kids and a lot to do before I have to work the polls and count votes on Tuesday.

But I will note this: 4 years ago today, the first African-American president was elected in a country that is still so divided by race that a major party candidate can coast to within a hair's breadth of winning through not-entirely-subtle dogwhistles and outright lies. I was so proud to work in Littleton, NH, for months trying to help Obama in our small corner of America, and while I haven't done enough this time around, I have high hopes for that imperfect man's chances day after tomorrow.

We have a good chance. It's not in the bag... but we have a good chance.

Then comes the hard part...
