      Loved your daughter’s response. Was that you with her?

      I’m not happy about how thay tried to frame the piece, like PBO was some let down or something! If there’s any disappointment on my part, it’s with the obstructionist and racist part of our country that gave him and our First Lady so much obstruction and hate. In spite of what he was up against, he accomplished more than I even dreamed. PBO has done a lot for criminal justice reform with his pen alone. HRC, as a white woman, will be able to take on police reform in a way that PBO could not. And, if we get a Dem congress, the next Pres may be able to sign laws, instead of just executive orders.

      Anyway, your daughter has grown into a lovely, poised young woman. Maybe she will be making a speech of her own in Grant Park one day!

        Thanks, and yes, that’s me. I was so excited and the filming took 2 days. At first, I thought they were trying to frame the piece. They filmed the other young lady first, and we had no idea what she said. It could be they were trying to see if Kelauni felt the same way. They were very gracious and it was quite the experience. We took them to Chicago Chicken and Waffles and that blew them away. It was very apparent that they were rooting for Hillary.

      ❤ ❤ your daughter's sensible and rational approach to PBO's 8 years in office. Was a bit peeved with the narrow view of the first young lady who seemed to have missed PresO's promise to be the president for everyone.

        The other young lady had a very different experience after that night eight years ago. I’m sure that shaped her worldview in a less enthusiastic way. They don’t know each other, but both have grown into wonderful young women. I’m proud of how well they both expressed themselves and hopeful that they remain involved in the process.

      President Obama was, is a great President.

    • November 8, 2016 at 3:46 pm

      I found what she said about how Trump would not be where he is today had Obama not been elected is actually very true. Not in a blaming Trump on PBO way, but in a way that it exposed the dirty underbelly of still existing racism. In other words: you can hide your racism, but find yourself suddenly faced with the fact that your president is a smart, educated black guy and it gets out people´s dirty racist side again.
      I also believe that this whole thing we´ve seen this year (and I have said this to many people) is like a fever. As in something that needs to happen in order to overcome a childhood desease. In this case the childhood desease is racism. And history has taught us that earlier or later we have to face our past, we cannot push it under the carpet. I believe that despite allthe mess we have seen this year, this is also the beginning of a more liberal era in the long run.

        Thanks and that’s exactly how she meant it. His election turned over many rocks and we know what resides there. The Republican party could have nipped the overt displays in the bud. They could have denounced that behavior early on. Then again, it was always party before country with them.

        • November 8, 2016 at 4:07 pm

          You know, thing is that even though I am not American myself I have spent the last years increasingly interested in US politics and have begun to understand more and more of how America “works”. It´s interesting to me, partly because I am a history teacher and because many of the things that I see there are rooted in history. For example my country (while having its problems like any other, sure) is not very patriotic and can easily talk about its dark spots in history. Because we were forced to face it.The US, too, has its “dark spots”, namely racism and the treatment of Native AMericans, but since the US have always been on the “winning side” there has never been a need to face these issues. However in some way history keeps coming back, it wants to be dealt with eventually and in the US I see it happening by the old and by tendency more racist generation slowly going away but not without a fight. As I said, fighting a desease often means the fever comes first.

            Yes, in the beginning, folks were oh so nice and welcoming. It seems the minute she insisted that Black History Month be included in her kid’s curriculum, or when she asked her kid’s parents to not display the confederate flag, then the smiles became frozen, and the welcome mat got yanked. She’s still fighting those battles and she’s lost many FB friends since the election. What do you expect, the biggest draw there is Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin. Don’t even get her started on the Native American water rights issue up there.

              Yes, I’m so sorry about ND and what it has become. From the moment I moved there back in 2003 I felt like I lived in the most foreign country on the planet. As for the Native’s- the bigotry and unfairness has always been thus. I do not miss ND or the ignorance. Your daughter is brave and her persistence is necessary- and I have huge respect for her trying to make a difference there. I know how difficult it is, often two steps forward and three steps back. I’m just sorry for ND on so many levels and it’s willful ignorance. I’m glad for her that she is leaving, because her quality of life matters too and fighting those battles hurts our psyche day in and day out.

    GA, TOD! Still working on tribute. Got called out by Mom to come jumpstart her car (left lights on while grocery shopping); did GOTV (Checked with everyone I saw on the street about voting; All but one had, the other assured me she will. Told her if she had voted by time I got there, I’d track her down…) Waked in the door to a call from my co-chair — greeters failed to show; rethugs have sent in “watchers, he has to go inside to protect the vote. The sick card works, three “I don’t get involved” friends are on their way to hand out literature — one is actually a republican!

    Hello TOD. cookemom, Your daughter–wonderful! Thank her on behalf of all of us.

    I typed all the following in just after noon and my iPad kept telling my email address was wrong. So, here’s my story. Few minutes before our food pantry closed, we had no clients. All the other women I serve with are “old white” women 🙂 and Trump supporters. This is what I hear: “I heard that buses of people were being bused into NH to vote.” “The governor of VA paroled 65,000 prisoners and 40,000 of them requested ballots. You know, the governor of VA is a die-hard Democrat.” “I’m really disappointed in the Bush family.” And, “I’m also disappointed in Gov. Kasich in OH. He’s acting like a spoiled baby.” Whew! As I sat there in my all white outfit with a blue scarf and blue earrings. 🙂 I was writing down everything I heard so I could remember. All of them know where I stand and I’m sure that’s why they said what they did. I totally ignored them. Never looked up, but I would guess they were pointing or looking at me as they talked. Who cares? They are the fools!!! I left there and went to my Pantsuit Nation event. We stood on a corner of the main highway/street in Knoxville and where people turned in to go vote. We got lots of horns beeping and lots of waving and thumbs up, but also got a lot of thumbs down, very nasty yells……some quite ugly but expected from the Trumpsters. That’s my day so far.

      I almost feel sorry for those “old confused, low information, women”, but I don’t. They are trying to hold onto a past that they think served them well. They see everything they’ve been taught and believe in with every thread of their being disappearing before their very eyes. These folks will pretend it’s about policy, or Hillary’s Efoundationghazimail, but in truth, it’s recognizing they’re a vanishing breed.

      • November 8, 2016 at 3:28 pm

        Absolutely. I, like you, don’t really feel sorry for them. One thing I thought of is that Trump does not fit a single belief of what our church believes in and supports. We actually try very hard to focus on what Jesus teaches: love God and love people……EVERYONE. In fact, all these ladies hear what I tell the new clients and say they love that I do this: We do not care where you are from, what you look like, how you are dressed or who you love. If you show up at any of our worship services, you will be blessed and loved. You will not be judged. We say EVERY PERSON matters. Now, how do they say they support and believe in that and then support Trump?!?!

        I actually had a good talk with a long-time client today. ‘She’ is Chris. For whatever reason, she said, “I have two SS cards, a newer one than that one” and she handed that one to me. ‘Her’ old card has the name Christopher. The new card has Shannon. She does go by Chris, at least when she comes to our food pantry. I asked her if she has a church she attends. She said no. I asked if she would consider giving us a try. She said, “Maybe because I’ve heard what you tell people.” (The above.) So, I gave her the info of our service times, talked a little about the different services and times and encouraged her to check us out.

    Thank you Nerdy, for all of your rapid thread creating to keep up with us today!

    Taught yoga this morning and stopped at Trader Joe’s to get my Election night snacks:

    Falafel tacos (falafels, combo flour/corn tortiila, diced tomatoes, picled green onions, organic tahini, feta cheese & hot sauce, of course!)
    – in homage to two of DT’s fave scapegoats
    Veggies with green goddess dressing – for all of the goddesses past and present!
    Marinated artichokes – in honor of DT’s campaign choking tonight
    Popcorn – because, of course!
    Apple pie and ice cream
    Virgin Mazel Tov Cocktail (pomegranate soda, ginger kombucha, dash of orange flower water)

    So many people were smiling and happy there! I saw a lot of “I voted” stickers. It was like in that scene from A Christmas Carol when the ghost of Christmas past sprinkled Xmas cheer on everyone. I’m in California, so we are mostly Dems around here.

    Gonna take a quick nap, shower, put on my white blouse and head to my polling station. Then at 3pm PST, I will take a moment to meditate for the “Elevate the vote” meditation flash mobs.

    BBL!

I did some praying afterwards and authentically felt forgiveness in my heart for DT and his followers (well, for a moment, anyway, while my consciousness was elevated 😇).

    So glad today is here. I’ve spoken about my suffragette grandmother before, so when I went to vote today, I did take her with me: I took her picture in my purse so she was with me. That felt really good.

    When I got to my car after voting, I burst into tears, realizing that I, a 76 year old woman, got to vote for a WOMAN for President of the U.S. It was really overwhelming to me. I know she’s going to win, and I know numerous Democrats are going to win to help her!

    I watched the video of the Clintons arriving in North Carolina last night, and noticed that Bill Clinton has perfected the Duke of Edinburgh three paces behind the queen walk…..he’s always been out front, but last night, Hillary walked in front of him and he kept two or three paces behind. For Bill Clinton…..that is big. She’s where she belongs!!!

      I hear you Carolyn. I totally surprised myself when I started to cry as I cast my ballot for Hillary in early voting. Ya know, I think we’ve kept this stuff bottled up for so many years–all the indignities, insults, humiliation– it has just become a part of us. I’ve been in tears all day today, just because it is an election day with a woman with a great chance of winning. I am surprised by that as well. Did not realize I was going to feel this way today.

          I’ll play the “aging pantsuit” card here. Back in the early ’70s (I worked for the Navy as a civilian), it was “decided” by our local command that “women can wear pants to work.” Not just dresses or skirts and blouses. Pants. There had to be a decision announced. I kid you not.

          We named it Pantsuit Day, and all the women came in wearing brand new outfits.

          In my lifetime. And I’m a baby compared to some people. Come on, Hillary, win! Enough is enough. Ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • November 8, 2016 at 7:05 pm

            When I began high school (’65), public high school, we were not allowed to wear pants and skirts had to touch the ground while kneeling. Then they let us wear culottes. Except if you were in the business curriculum, then it had to be a skirt. I wasn’t in that curriculum, I just took one shorthand class and the teacher sent me home for wearing culottes.

              I graduated h.s. in ’64. Spent the last half year (I had switched to business after discovering boys) going to my job in an office (mornings in school). The shorthand nun (Ha!) would literally MEASURE our skirts and if the dress or skirt didn’t fully cover the knee (in the age of mini skirts), she’d tell you to “never wear it again.” Go, Hillary!

    If these numbers are correct from Slate, Hillary is running away with this election. Leading in all 7 Battleground states. Has a 300k lead in FL.

      Huh, isn’t Trump the one who repeatedly said he did not need the RNC? Just looking for someone to blame for his failures. From what I read, Reince has lived at Trump Tower the last few months so I don’t know how their could be less coordination. He’s just mad because he didn’t put a ground game together and expected the RNC to do it for him. But they did not have the money because he didn’t want to fund raise either. The man is a big baby.

    Raw Numbers from Slate votetrackr site: http://www.slate.com/votetrackr
    Fl: C- 4,700k-T-4,400K (C+300K) WI: C-1,200K T-4,400K (C+300k), PA: C-2,300k T-2,170k (C+130K), OH: C-2,353k T-2,331k (C+22k), NH: C-279k T-254k (C+55k), IA: C-614k T-599k (C-15k), NV – C- 473k T-465k (C+ 8k) These numbers are taken from EVs and raw number feeds from state numbers and assigned according to the model they developed. They all seem plausible, especially what I’m hearing from FL, except maybe for NV because the numbers didn’t match well with Jon Ralston’s. Clinton leading in all seven states, even small leads in IA and OH.

    GA/GE TODville.

    Actual results should be coming in at the top of the hour I think.

    Meanwhile, in suburban Los Angeles (not far from GGail — mapquest tells me it’s less than 3 miles from her [I think])…

    Nothing so dramatic when I voted at about 1pm (4pm EST) — no line AT ALL, Middle School voting area was fully staffed. One of the volunteers told me there were more than 100 people in line to vote at 7am when the polls opened.

    I so hope this is not election related but seems likely. We are not looking good to rest of the world.

    I must be nervous, my empathy seems to have deserted me. If I hear one more commentator talk about the need for Clinton to look out for those uneducated white men, I think I just may scream. POC and women, who make up the vast majority of this country, have been treated like second class citizens from the day this country was founded. What did we do? Pulled ourselves up, got educations, and pushed on through it. But we are supposed to feel sorry for these uneducated white men who want a job handed to them for the rest of their lives so they don’t have to retrain, etc????? We still don’t make the same wages or benefits, but just keep on. Saw somewhere today I saw white women with a college degree surpass white women without a college degree for the first time. Why is that? Because they had to.

    I’m not saying it isn’t a problem that needs to be addressed, just please spare me any more tears.

      My solution, I don’t watch or listen to the talking heads, since a long time ago. They know nothing about nothing.

    I won’t rest until I hear she won and Trump concedes . . . well, on second thought, I won’t rest until the announcement that Clinton won.
