i woke our son to tell him the news and so that he could hear obama's speech. i took him to an obama rally when he came to our state. his school voted yesterday in mock polls and there's no guess as who he voted for. he's so happy.

I have to say I am in awe. I have the utmost respect for both Obama and McCain and I truly think they both mean well for this country but have different views on how to go about it.
It is truly an amazing moment in our history and I am so glad to be able to experience it. I never thought I'd see the day when people would be celebrating in the streets over an election. Amazing!
I spent most of the morning crying while watching the news.

Where can I sign up to join the Bush moving party?

Ya'll I've been crying since yesterday...when I realized that OBAMA might actually win this election. You know as a kid, when people tell kids they can be anything in the world, including the president, I never really believed them when they would tell me that. Now, I look at my 7 year old nephew, and when people tell him that he can be the president of the United States, I know that he DOES believe it!!! I remember my mother taking me and my sister with her when she would work the polls and vote, and now, my sister took my nephew and niece (7 and 2) and its soooo inspirational to see my 2 year old niece yelling "YES WE CAN".

Hi guys, I'm sorry but I think I messed up when I moved this thread to Politics. I think I lost the first post somehow.

I'm leaving the threads about voting on the general board, but moving the ones about who won or lost to Politics. (By request.)
Good for him

I do feel badly for McCain though, since at his age this was his last chance. I think he's a really decent guy, and it's just unfortunate for him that he had to finally win the nomination in such an anti-republican year. I liked him 8 years ago, and I wish he had gotten the nod over Bush. I think he would have done a much better job.

It will be interesting to see if Obama can live up to the outrageously high expectations that everyone is setting for him. I think he's going to be a good president, but unless he drastically changes the world I think there are going to be folks who are unsatisfied.
I'm late to all these threads because I was glued to the TV. I am soooooooo happy!!!!!!!!!!

Obama is such a good man. Kind, honest, contemplative, thoughtful and reasoned. A HUGE breath of fresh air in the White House. With a MANDATE this big and so many seats in the Congress going to Democrats I hope they all (politicians in general) see that what WE THE PEOPLE want is change. Change from the partisan bickering, change from the Corporate Me Generations way of thinking, change from the old way of seeing the world, change for the better.

I feel great hope today. I'm honored to call him my President-elect.
< member since 2006. No idea where 1969 came from.
It is so inspiring to see so many people so PROUD of their country again.
Obama is truly a beacon of light IMO. I feel truly inspired by him as a man, as a president and by America as a country.
It has renewed me, somehow

(I'm from Canada, btw. But if I could've been, I woulda been marchin down the streets with the rest of them for his victory!!)

And ITA that it was really lame for McCain supporters to boo him. WTF? You don't boo your own team!

Since I became aware that politics existed, I've only seen bad and worse for us; and now, I feel like I can hope for better. The one I wanted actually WON! I got to vote for him! Something good actually didn't get shot down. The world is upside down and it feels great.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.

Sometimes those of us in Gen X and Y - including myself - forget about America's ugly past.
