Primary reflections.

Polls close in Pennsylvania in about 10 minutes. I plan to follow the returns on the official Pennsylvania site, though I may decide to join Women for Obama at The Church Brew Works -- we shall see.

As my dinner break wound down, I realized: I've seen Obama T-shirts, stickers and buttons today (and plenty of people have commented on mine) but I have yet to see a single Hillary badge walk through that door. It's probably a statement on how insular this community is.

My favorite moment today: driving through The Hill District, and watching a man standing on the sidewalk, waving an Obama sign at passing, honking motorists. I think it was just a run-of-the-mill polling place type of thing, but still: when was the last time you saw that kind of excitement over a primary? And especially a late primary, like Pennsylvania?

I have to get back to work now. But man am I happy to be a part of this moment in history.
