Shameless heartstring tugs...

Maggie admits:
Nytimes.com is killing me right now. It's just shameless, posting "trigger the sweeping musical score" fodder like this for certain emotional political junkies out there, right on their front page. But I'm so won over anyway. I love voting. I want to hug Rijena! And I'm dying to know who she's voting for! What is she registering as? What was her life like in Sudan? What does she do in Manchester? Give me more!

Rijena Rongiev, an immigrant from Sudan, registered to vote for the first time.
