N&O Obama and Basnight make history

I was in line to cast my early ballot in Manteo on Tues. and looked up to see one of the names on the ballot in the flesh. No not Barack but Basnight, Marc and his daughters came in to vote around 3pm. Under the Dome reports the two met at a rally on Wed. in Raleigh and shared some history. Click through for the whole story but here is the punch line:
Basnight, a Manteo Democrat, said he was from Roanoke Island. Obama immediately knew that was the site of the first English settlement in the New World and site of the Wright Brothers' flight.

Senator Basnight replied, "There's a lot of history there, but I got to make history myself yesterday by voting for you."
