message 251: by Lori (new)

Lori I got real choked up seeing that crowd in Chicago. All different colors and sexes, standing side by side while our next President says Yes We Can.

Meen (MeenDee) | 1733 comments Oh, you have NOOOO idea!


(Watching the speech felt like it was a movie or something. There is NO way this is happening in my lifetime! No fucking way after the last eight years of fucking fundamentalist HELL we took our country back! And these United States just elected an African-American to the highest office in the land! That means SOOOO much to this white girl from backwoods MS, you can't even imagine. *whew*)

I'm happy too!!!

message 255: by Shelly (new)

Shelly I just got off the phone w/ my niece, my mother, and my oldest sister. My niece's first election was 2004 and she, prompted by my mother and sister, voted Bush. My mother and sister also voted Bush in 2000. My mother and sister also voted for the first Bush. This time, however, they all voted Obama! I couldn't believe it! I had no idea b/c I don't talk politics w/ them b/c we always argue! I'm sofa-king stoked!

Kirk | 154 comments Yea, Indiana! I'm proud of Hoosiers. Good work, Mellencampers!

As for Alabama ... I take the blame. Maybe that Streakers for Obama Rally I organized wasn't such a good idea after all....

On a super positive note, I'm proud to say my son cast his first national election vote. Back in 04 he didn't turn 18 until a month after the election and was pissed. So now he was excited about getting to go. (Granted, he didn't want to go at 6 a.m. when I went, but still.....)

Books Ring Mah Bell re 272, HA!

Here late to share in the joy... could not believe it... I had goose bumps as the votes came in last night.

I'm... wow.

God I feel so hopeful. so positive...

*big group hug*

Sheila Hey RA. Your thread morphed!

A great thread and a great day. :)

And what an awesome victory speech last night. Whoever writes that man's speeches is a genius.

Had to laugh, watching the news, at the rowdy crowd in front of the White House.

"In your face, Bush!"

Shelly Ha! Best Onion article ever!

Citizens with eyes, ears, and the ability to wake up and realize what truly matters in the end are also believed to have played a crucial role in Tuesday's election.
