Obama Wins!

Barack Obama has accomplished what was thought to be the impossible and become the 44th and first African American President. This historic triumph transcended race. McCain called his former rival to concede defeat — and the end of his own 10-year quest for the White House. "The American people have spoken, and spoken clearly," McCain told disappointed supporters in Arizona. A friend of mine informed me that some people will be jumping off of buildings tomorrow.

As the
44th president, Obama will move into the Oval Office as leader of a country that is almost certainly in recession, and fighting two long wars, one in Iraq, the other in Afghanistan. The popular vote was close, but not the count in the Electoral College, where it mattered most.

Let's take this time to congratulate President elect Barack Obama and join me in wishing him a prosperous four years. Let the confetti fly!

I was tossing confetti over here and even shed a tear or two while listening to his speech. I feel hope and relief - relief that the majority of the American people made the right choice. Never really felt this way before after an election.

Thank God! This was the first time I've ever been truly excited about a Presidential election. His speech on Tuesday night just gave me chills.
I like how he immediately addressed those that did not vote for him and told them that "I hear you, and I will be your President too." He's already trying to bring everyone together - as it should be!
I can't wait until Jan. 20th!
