Obama Wins Landslide (in Tiny NH Town)

At this point, I've lived in New York longer than I ever lived in New Hampshire, where I grew up. Still, I feel a good bit of pride that the 21 registered voters of Dixville Notch, NH, in a fairly isolated conservative northern corner of a conservative state, have thrown their support behind Obama.

Yep, it's a tiny victory, and I'm gnashing my teeth, biting my nails, fidgeting at my computer as I await further results. But right now, it's something to hold on to, and I'm holding on to it with a glee that bubbles up from under the weight of the anxiety about what else might come.
