...and I feel fine!
The Early Registration was at 69 W. Washington, right by my office in the Loop. Only took about 45 minutes in line during lunch. As I stood in line, I observed the e older gentleman in front of me, the pretty young woman with an iPod in front of him, the mother with USA stitched into winter cap, and a guy with dreadlocks. For all the diversity in the line, everyone seemed to have the same anticipatory smile on their face.
I felt an odd surge of patriotism and it was heart-warming. Something was in the wind, and it felt like change.
