I'm at home right now and a little while ago there was a ring of the doorbell. It was the painter who has been painting the outside of our building, he greeted me in a thick Liverpool accent and asked if I was Irish (which I am always asked, in person and on the phone). I told him no, I'm American.
"Oh, did you vote?" he asked. I told him yes, and he asked if he could enquire who I voted for. "Kerry." A visible look of relief was on his face when he replied, "Oh thank God, I hate that Bush man!"
He asked who I thought would win and I told him I honestly didn't know to which he said, "I think Kerry will win."
Let's hope the Liverpudlian painter is correct.
well, i hope the irishman is right! although kerry isn't irish (tho his name sure sounds like it), i will go ahead and take your friend's blessings as a good sign.
