May she rest in peace, and my prayers are with Senator Obama and his family.

That is very sad indeed. Obama said before he went to see her that he didn't expect her to make to election day. I still wish he had stayed just one more day to be with her on her last birthday.
I am not saying that to be mean, I just think it's sad.

She passed away at like 5 this morning. Has he looked sad at all? I haven't seen him at all today.

Janey, I think you know your ? was uncalled for. And certainly very insensitive considering your feelings about him.

I am glad that his grandmother was able to cast her absentee ballot for her grandson before she died. May she rest in peace rose

Barack's comments yesterday about his Grandmother:

Obviously, this is a little bit of a bittersweet time for me. We have had a remarkable campaign. And, you know, when we started 21 months ago, I didn't know how it would turn out. And no matter what happens tomorrow, I'm going to feel good about how its turned out because all of you have created this incredible campaign. Some of you have heard that my grandmother who helped raise me passed away early this morning. And look, she has gone home. And she died peacefully in her sleep. With my sister at her side. And so there is great joy as well as tears. I'm not going to talk about it too long because its hard, a little, to talk about.
I want everybody to know, though, a little bit about her. Her name was Madelyn Dunham. She was born in Kansas in a small town in 1922. Which means that she lived through the Great Depression, she lived through two World Wars, she watched her husband go off to war while she looked after a baby and worked on a bomber assembly line. When her husband came back, they benefited from the GI Bill and they moved West and eventually ended up in Hawaii. And she was somebody who was a very humble person and a very plainspoken person.

She was one of those quiet heroes that we have all across America who, they're not famous, their names aren't in the newspapers, but each and every day, they work hard. They look after their families. They sacrifice for their children and their grandchildren. They aren't seeking the limelight. All they try to do is just do the right thing. And in this crowd, there are a lot of quiet heroes like that. Mothers and fathers, grandparents who have worked hard and sacrificed all their lives. And the satisfaction that they get is seeing that their children and maybe their grandchildren, or their great grandchildren, live a better life than they did. That's what America is about. That's what we're fighting for. And North Carolina, in just one more day, we have the opportunity to honor all those quiet heroes all across America, and all across North Carolina. To bring change to America to make sure that their work and their sacrifice is honored. That's what we're fighting for. [/b]

And, this makes me happy and a bit tearful......

Madelyn Dunham's vote will count
Kevin Cronin, Hawaii's chief election officer for the state, tells Eli Sanders that Obama's grandmother has voted, and her vote will be counted, despite her having died before election day:

Ms. Dunham’s absentee mail ballot was received and reviewed under the Hawaii standards for processing absentee mail ballots… She was alive at that time. Her ballot will be opened tomorrow, and it will be counted in the same way that all absentee voters would be treated under our law.

My question was addressed to Morgan. But thanks for reading my mind.
