ABC News just called the election for President of the United States in Obama’s favor. And that means that for the first time in my life, I voted for a non-incumbent candidate who won the presidency.
In 2004, I voted for John Kerry, who lost to George W. Bush.
In 2000, I voted for Al Gore, who lost to George W. Bush.
In 1996, I think I voted for Bill Clinton. He actually won, but was the incumbent.
In 1992, I voted for Ross Perot, who lost to Bill Clinton.
In 1988, the first election in which I could vote, I can’t remember for sure, but I think I voted for the Libertarian candidate, Ron Paul. And of course he lost to George H.W. Bush.
