Why was history made today?

North Carolina voters have served up a triple shot of history at the ballot box.
1. They chose an African American - Barack Obama - as a nominee for president of the United States by a healthy margin. That’s never happened before.
2. Beverly Perdue clobbered Richard Moore for the Democratic nomination for governor. She is the first woman party nominee for state’s top post.
3. Two women also will face off in November for one of North Carolina's two seats in the U.S. Senate - another first. Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole will face State Sen. Kay Hagan of Greensboro.

With a flick of the wrist or the push of a button, the history book changes.
Why do you think that happened in this election?

The democrats are going to rule the country come November due to that idiot George Bush. He has single handedly destroyed what once was a rich and prosporous nation. Other countries hate us and all that we stand for..and I don't like the USA too much right now myself since the economy is sending us into a deep recession.

I move we invalidate all of District 99's votes. With a majority of these voters voting for Mackey it is clearly they are idiots!
