    I'll be in Indiana at our satellite clinic that day... although perhaps I can get back in time for the celebration.

    exactly. we (or at least i) HOPE it will be a "victory" party. but we don't know yet :)

    my in-laws own a condo in a high-rise overlooking Grant Park - maybe i should book a plane ticket... vote first thing in the AM, then fly into Midway later in the day. :)

    Um... how do they handle security at an event like that? Secret Service aren't gonna frisk one million people. I can't shake the feeling that for every nut who wanted to assassinate JFK, there's fifty who want to assassinate Obama.

    Much more if you include the Republican Party and the Executive Branch of the Government.;)
