Best Election Story

I haven't posted about the election because I don't see much point in posting anything unless it's something that everyone else has not yet said. But this is the best story from my personal experience about it:

A friend of my wife's is very religious, and attends an evangelical church. A pretty cool one, as those things go -- their pastor was a big Obama supporter -- but definitely One Of Those Churches. She had been a McCain supporter up until the night before the election, when some of her church friends came over and worked on her pretty hard to switch sides.

So this person prayed earnestly on who she should vote for, and when she got up Tuesday morning she was convinced that God told her to vote for Obama, so she did.

My reaction was "finally! The endorsement we've been waiting for!"
