One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and one whose temper is controlled than one who captures a city.

Robin and I were in line at 6:15 this morning. We were about the 40th persons to vote, and we enjoyed meeting the folks around us in the line. By the time we left, about 7:20, around 100 persons were in line. I remember being in Jerusalem in January 1996 and watching the very first Palestinian elections - high voter turnout, great enthusiasm for the process, reverence for the high privilege of voting. What I have appreciated most about this long campaign process is the large number of persons who have told me that they are excited about politics for the first time in their lives, and want to participate in our democracy. Every time I vote, I remember January 1996 and thank God for the privilege and responsibility of being a citizen of this great American democracy.
