2008 Elections: How Many Voted?
How interesting. According to infoplease, nearly 62 per cent of the electorate turned out to vote on Tuesday.
And a very good job they did. Thank you, people. For our new President. Who has proved that the grass will not grow up under his feet, as he (tired as he must be after that grueling 2-year-long effort) starts work on the enormous task that awaits him.
He's already been attending daily security briefings. He's begun the task of picking his Cabinet, carefully vetting each and every pick. He's spoken with various foreign leaders to begin the arduous task of rebuilding America's image abroad and to lay the groundwork for a consensus on an end to nuclear proliferation. Today, he's giving a press conference. He's in the midst of a conference with a broad and representative range of economic advisers even as we speak.
No brush-trimming lengthy vacations for our new President! He started work on this job almost immediately after the old job ended! Stumble It!
