Allowing myself to hope.

I will be really really pissed off if Obama loses. He's got me all hopped up on hope.

Sweet that it uses Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land"--I recently heard the full version of the song. We didn't learn the complete song in elementary school. But the lyrics are worthy of knowing.

As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.
