All over the country, Democrats and Republicans are coming together...to wait in line and vote for their guy. In the early hours on Tuesday, there were already long lines at the polls. Despite below-freezing temperatures in many areas, voters waited outside for an hour or sometimes more to carry out their civic duty. GOP candidate Mitt Romney is among them, voting in Belmont, Mass., on Tuesday. But President Obama is among the many Americans who beat the wait and the weather—he voted early in Chicago, casting his ballot on Oct. 25.
