Barack and Michelle Obama Cast Their Votes

Barack and Michelle Obama cast their votes in Chicago a short time ago:

Voting"The family was ushered inside ahead of a line of their Hyde Park neighbors that wrapped around the block and cheered upon their arrival. Fellow voters inside watched in silence and snapped cell-phone pictures. Obama kissed the cheek of the poll worker who took his ballot, then watched while she fed it into a machine. The crowd broke into applause when a smiling Obama held up his validation slip and said, 'I voted.'"

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Love that family

    Scratch that. I love the First Family. :-) Mr President, The First Lady, the 2 ?First? Daughters (what did we all call Chelsea back in the day?), and Michele's moma the First Grandma who has helped a ton in raising the girls through the primaries and the election.

    I hope Obama and Michele can survive the coming dreaded teen years of their 2 daughters.

  2. "I hope Obama and Michele can survive the coming dreaded teen years of their 2 daughters."

    Amen, JIMMY, and I also hope that the FBI and Secret Service will do their jobs in helping The First Family survive some of the violent, right-wing nut jobs in this country.

  4. PS

    I also Hope the girls get through their teenage years without going crazy. The pressure of the spotlight, being constantly surrounded by SS agents = hard to rebel, etc. Rebellion is a normal part of growing up and I can't even imagine the difficulty in being a typical teenager under so much pressure. Hopefully they both come through it and grow into graceful and dignified young women like Chelsea did.

  5. Gee, I guess the whole freakin gaycom is in bed with BHO. Well, not everyone. This is just nauseating fawning over an empty-headed politician. And did BHO mentioned who he voted for? So Palin gets ridiculed but BHO gets a pass. How typical.

  7. You are indeed in the minority here, RB, so, unless you can cope with the joy most of us felt when voting for Obama today, you better stick to safer sites like FOX News and the Drudge Report, tho I suspect things might get glum over there later tonight. Your mistake is thinking that we're "fawning" or that Obama is "empty-headed." You voted your conscience, we voted ours. Obama, whatever you may think of his positions, has proven that he is anything but empty-headed, one reason that intelligent Republicans have come over to our side this election. History is shifting, with or without your endorsement.
