A Little Night Music, And A Decision

Up too late again, getting a churning stomach from watching the news.

There is a song that I just can't get out of my head right now, for some pretty obvious reasons.

These are the two best versions I've ever heard:






After my public hand-wringing a few days ago (sorry if that seemed so damned self-important) about whether or not I could vote for Obama, I can say that I've settled that argument with myself.

I will be voting for Barack Obama without reservation or hesitation.

It is that important and, despite some of my disagreements that are still there, I do believe he will be great for this country.

Not that this brilliant revelation to myself matters to any of you. But there it is.

Waits is fantastic. As an actor, too. Thanks for voting for Obama. I've never been this hopeful about a politician in my entire life. I am giving him my vote and trust. If he squanders it, I am vowing to never vote in this country again.

This is also the first time in my life I've become so certain about a candidate. I saw him speak last night and he was amazing.

My hopes are up so high, if they are dashed this time I'm seriously going to never vote again either, like swine said.

Thank you for the vote for Obama!
