Policy Nerds Gone Wild

Where else does it happen that a big night in the organized party world is Election Night, but in DC? Okay, a small exaggeration, I’ve only heard of a few planned parties, but the funny part is that it’s part of daily and normal life here.

The polls have closed in Virginia, it’s 7:00 p.m. and the closely-watched VA senate race is too close to call. Could be good or bad, depending on who your guy is. I made a tough decision this year – I voted for neither, and I think I was still exercising my right to choose. I voted for every other office, but I couldn’t aid in electing either of these candidates.

Did I have a little bit of voters remorse today? Yep. Will I feel incredibly bad if Allen (who would have been my default choice) loses by one vote? Incredibly. Like I said, it was a hard decision, but I’m okay with it… for now.

Alas, I am off to my Election Night Party where ideologies will be argued, theories of voter turn-out and exit polls will be debated, and I will love it, and be joined by the other nerds of our grand city.

    I think you can be proud of that! I can’t stand Allen but Webb is hardly a dream candidate. Good for you for taking the time to vote for the smaller races.
