‘I Voted’

By November 8, 2005General

Because this is Election Day in the blogger-in-chief’s adopted state of Virginia and home state of New Jersey and in California (among other places) as well, here’s a link to a schmaltzy piece written last year called, “I Voted.”

Met a new citizen today, from Morocco, a waiter at a restaurant across the street from NAM HQ here in DC. He told me proudly that he was not only a new citizen, but that today he exercised his right as a citizen here in the US for the first time and he voted. If you could have seen the pride in his eyes, you would have been moved. Ah, democracy.

Happy Election Day, all.
