this is it

It seemed like this day would never come, but it's finally here.

Today is Election Day 2008. Hopefully, by tonight we'll know who'll be our next president.

With your help and your vote, we can usher in a new progressive era of hope and change. We can elect Democrats up and down the ballot that will help make the necessary reforms that will get our country headed back in the right direction. The results of this most consequential election will determine the future of our country. No less hangs in the balance.

Many have speculated what this country would look like if Al Gore had become the president eight years ago instead of George W. Bush. Let's not spend the next eight years wondering what might have been. Let's make our hopes and dreams a reality. Let's vote for real progress, instead of divisive Washington politics that's gotten us nowhere.

Let our vote be a resounding demand to end the war in Iraq, work toward universal health care, end tax cuts for corporations outsourcing our jobs, and become independent from foreign oil by investing in new and alternative forms of energy. Let our vote tell the government that we will no longer accept it prying into our bedrooms and doctor's offices, but will instead send it where it's most needed- our schools.

Most of all, let our vote tell the youth of this country that we care about their future. That we want them to inherit an earth better than that which we received.

We hope you'll take the time to vote today, if you haven't already. Vote for your future. And vote for ours.
