Barack Obama’s grandmother Madelyn Dunham died today in Hawaii after a battle with cancer. Obama’s family issued this statement:

She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility. She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances. She was proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and left this world with the knowledge that her impact on all of us was meaningful and enduring. Our debt to her is beyond measure.

Wow, that really sucks.  I was crossing my fingers that she would make it until he won.  Really sad.  That said, if you haven’t already, get your asses out there and vote!  It is obvious who I have voted for, but the most important thing is that you get out there and do it either way. My thoughts are with the Obama family.
