Picture of the Day - 8

(Mary Beth Goring gets a pat on the shoulder from another voter as she is overcome with emotion while voting at the Beauty Market hair supply shop in Inglewood, California. Goring said she never thought the day would come where she could vote for a black president and she became more emotional than she thought she would while placing her vote.(Danny Moloshok/Reuters))


  • Seeing Obama's name on the ballot prompted the waterworks. It represents a such a giant step in healing the wounds of 350 years. The problem with crying at the booth is that you can't read the ballot! This fellow did his best to calm me down, but it took prayer intervention from some precinct ladies before the spilling stopped long enought to make my selections.
