I have to be honest and say that the evening of November 4th was not a very happy one for me. Adam and I both requested mail-in ballots, and then we spent hours upon hours studying all the issues and candidates together while we filled in our ballots at home. I have never in my life spent so much time and thought on an election. Just a disclaimer, I am generally pretty conservative in my political views. I was disappointed, then, when Colorado voted strongly Democrat for almost all the issues and candidates. Not that I think I wasted my time by preparing carefully to vote, I just wish that something I voted for had passed!! The only good news of the night for me was that Prop 8 passed in California. WAY TO GO!!
