Last night at the Board of Elections

Here's what I saw at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections when I went to pick up my press pass at 6:30 last night:

-A line stretching around the corner of East 30th and Euclid, almost all the way to Chester. People at the door to the building said they'd waited 40 minutes at that point.

-Former Cleveland law director Subodh Chandra and two other merry Obama supporters singing folk songs to the crowd in line: "Shower the People" by James Taylor and Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land."

-Around the corner, a bus with a huge sound system inside, blasting out soul music, including Otis Redding doing "This Little Light of Mine."

-Volunteers for Obama and county commissioner Peter Lawson Jones handing out literature.

-More volunteers -- Obama people, I think -- giving out bags of potato chips.

-A candidate for county judge, Laura Gallagher, campaigning.
