The moment I had a feeling Obama was going to win

It was over the summer, when I saw Obama give the lifetime achievement award to Bob Dylan and they played "The Times They Are a Changin" in the background. Just the day before, I had rewatched the episode of West Wing where they played that song in the scene where the president gets reelected. I said to my dad at the time "I think this is a good sign."

Earlier tonight I listened to that song and I could just feel it that we are going to win tomorrow. I'll admit, the latest ABC/WashPost poll didn't hurt, but I can just feel it in my gut that we are going to win. I just wish I wasn't so far from the action this time...in 2008 I got to go to Obama's last rally in Manassas and it was so exciting, because we all knew he was going to win and the excitement was incredible.

1. Thanks for that....I believe in signs.

My lucky number is 888. Was driving and saw license plate with 888 on it. Then saw Obama's face. It was on a bumpersticker on the car in front of the 888. It was the only bumpersticker I have ever seen with his picture on it. May sound silly....but stuff like that has never been wrong for me.

2. Always thought he would win

I got nervous after the first debate. As a woman I know women are one of the largest and never thought women would be behind him. My husbands thinks people vote against their best interests but I have for the most part felt Romeny could not beat him!!!!!
