Yes We Can - Vote! Open Thread 2

"Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change."

This video has been around for quite some time - uploaded on Feb. 2, 2008, according to YouTube. I had seen bits and pieces of it in the spring, never really stopping to watch the whole thing, never really registering with me on an emotional level until I saw it on the big screen at Van Andel Arena, the day Edwards endorsed, the first time I saw Obama speak live, May 14th, 2008.

It gave me chills. I got it.

DKos posted it earlier and reminded me of it, and I've watched it a few more times again today - and it still gives me a rush. The anticipation is a bit overwhelming right now.

Here is another open thread - report your voting experience, post some pics, hang out and chat, whatever you want. It is now less than 5 hours until the polls in Michigan close. If you haven't voted yet - well, get off the computer and get out there right now and do it!

Yes, you can. Go vote!
