Obama kept the crowd calm and made them think about the responsibilities ahead...
Beautiful speech and people.
YES WE DID!
Thank you Kelly. My mom is doing great. She was so excited tonight. Family members were calling her from across the country in shock. This day was not in their wildest dreams. God Bless America. I was so confident because he stayed ahead in the polls for over 35 days. I put a lot of trust the polls.
I'm happy for your grandmother. My mother is the only one left from her generation. She wanted to live long enough to see this day. She would call up and ask me about my polls. So I was helping her and RFO my posting my findings. Obama's speech tonight made her cry. It's what she wanted to hear -- uplifting and spiritual.
Now, with all of the other stuff going on tonight, why is that picture the only one that actually made my eyes well up a little bit?
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, & wiser people so full of doubts. -- Bertrand Russel
I'm sure Ira Glass may put it like this.
When it's all over, when the adrenaline wears off, it hits you: you've just elected Barack Obama President of the United States.

The enemy of "the best" is not "the worst." The enemy of "the best" is "good enough."
The problems we face will not be solved by the minds that created them.
That's just funny!

I haven't been here indeed, but I have in spirit. While I kept myself from posting politically due to me getting carried away, I had been volunteering with the local democratic party office for the Obama campaign during the last month, so I've been staying in the fight in a more positive way.
I had to step back, keep my mouth shut, and do something productive so that's what I did. I hope you are well. If you are "Suzi"(you didn't have the last name before), then you have been in my thoughts and prayers.
It is me, Benjamin. We added the last name for blogging purposes. I've thought of you often too, and have kept you and your family in my prayers.
This is a joyful day for us all. All of our hard work has paid off, and we begin a new chapter in our nation's history.
Bob Barr? Arggggh. The LP lost what remaining shreds of credibility it had in my eyes when it selected Bob Barr. I stopped posting here and online anywhere for a while because I was so angry about the rank and file ignorance that was being displayed after the Palin pick, I just couldn't contain it anymore so I had to walk away and do something more positive.
I'd vote for Joe Biden before Barr. At least with Biden you know what you're getting. Barr is one day "Hey, I'm a rank and file republican drug warrior" and next "no wait, look at me, I'm libertarian now. Weeee!" Whatever.
What a beautiful family!!!
I so look forward to seeing the girls grow up, hopefully for the next 8 years!
Malia is beautiful, and Sasha's definitely Daddy's girl!
Never in my wildest dreams - - - Obama and family is going to be in the White House for crying out loud!! It's a great day for America.
My father never got a chance to see this day like my mother and I. But, in my heart I know he saw.
Sam Cooke....the chills and the tears are fighting for control of me. I know this election isn't about race, nor should it be. But please allow me an indulgence. It has been a long time coming....and finally our nation as a whole is able to elect the best man for the job, without regard to the color of his skin. I can only imagine the pride, no matter which side of the aisle one is on, in the AA community as a whole. The pride, the relief and the thankfulness that we have finally come this far. The work is not done, be we have really achieved a major milestone.
A nation founded in slavery has elected an African American president. I salute you America!
