No matter what you think about the electoral college, it is an historical tradition, and a central part of our democracy. And today, North Carolina gave 15 votes to Barack Obama.

One of the coolest parts was the nominating and second speeches, and 2 Young Democrats got the honors of not just being electors but of nominating Obama and Biden. Kara Hollingsworth helped give the Obama speech and Sam Spencer gave the speech for Biden. This was a proud day for everyone at the state capitol, and I was thrilled that I got to be there.
