An election evening visit to my local 7-11 store on Colfax Avenue. Not surprisingly, the blue Obama cups were hard to find – and the red McCain cups were stacked up all over the store. This “7-election” claims to have called the last two elections correctly. With some help from the store clerk I found one of the last few Obama cups available, and headed home to drink my Obama Java and watch the big party at Chicagos’ Grant Park.
