President-Elect Barack Obama

I’m still wiping the tears from my eyes right now. Everything from Obama’s grandmother casting her ballot and passing away just one day before Obama was elected President of the United States to my black friend telling his son that he could be President one day, too, has brought me to tears tonight. My Ex thinks I’m a sap, I’m sure, but I don’t care. It’s amazing!

Gavin has been running around the apartment all night shouting “Barack Obahhhhhma wins!” and is eagerly planning his “Barack Obama Party” for tomorrow (hey, I gotta find a way to bribe the kid to go to bed…!). I’ve been anxiously drinking wine, biting my nails as the results came in. But, in the end, they came in the right way.

It’s a wonderful and historic moment for our country and I’m so excited for what tomorrow brings!

  1. LANDSLIDE victory! I couldn’t believe it! I’m so proud of our generation for getting out there and voting in record numbers. I teared up too-and when I hear the replaying of his speech, I get choked up again. This is a huge moment in history for our country. I’m so glad we get to be a part of it!

  2. Sometimes I wonder if people have forgotten that we are supposed to be the “United” States. I too am thrilled that Barack Obama won and would hope that the other side would be as gracious as McCain (I know his last speech was written for him…) in congratulating Obama’s victory. Could we stop the booing and the name calling now?
