Barack the Vote!

Ok, I was going to stay home and watch the speech on TV by myself, but my friend Leslie invited me for an Obamajama Party. She's taking care of the food. I'm bringing the drinks. Barackellinis:

2 ounces peach nectar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 ounce peach schnapps
4 ounces sparkling wine
crushed ice

Put it all in the blender (for 1 drink). Now that's change I can believe in! What are y'all doing tonight?

Sitting in KCET master control and waiting for the NewsHour to cut away from the convention for 2:07 . . . and saying "roll it" at just the right moment. And then doing it again at the end. And then adjusting the night's schedule.

I'm torn between watching the speech (which will presumably be reprinted in the paper tomorrow) and starting Amy MacKinnon's Tethered. I supposed if he's not long-winded I could do both.

I'm drinking wine, watching the speech, and marveling at the power of democracy.

At the end I'll probably be in tears. This is just so cool.

What a magnificent speech! I can't imagine Sen. McCain possibly coming up with anything as spirited or inspiring.

I watched it with my parents. My Dad voted for Shirley Chisholm way back when, and though he is a fiercely independent soul, he is depending on the Dems to carry the day.

The NYT and some other East Coast news organizations used to call presidents Mr. ... rather than just their last names. So I say,

Go, Mr. Obama!
