91 Year Old Puma Voting for Obama

I knew she would but I came prepared to argue. We were just on her porch talking politics in our limp wristed, evil, liberal way. During the Primary she was a staunch Hillary supporter, one of those older women who really, really, really wanted to "cast her vote for a woman President" and wasn't sure who she would vote for in the general election. But now she told me, with a chuckle, that she'd be voting the "straight democratic ticket--as usual." She's been voting for 68 years without missing a single local or national election. Cast her first vote for FDR and remembers how terrible Hoover was. She has nothing but contempt for Republican policies and politicians and she loves Biden and thinks Palin is a joke. One more vote in the ballot box.
