What a fantastic evening it has been. I listened to the election results on NPR radio on my drive home from work. By the time I arrived home things looked very good for Obama, but I had no idea how good.
Now we know how good.
Americans have voted to take this great country in a new direction. I love this man’s passion and conviction. I remain optimistic that our country can come together to fix the many problems facing us today.
McCain gave a gracious speech tonight. He loves this country. You could see it in his eyes. I hope Obama will keep his word and reach out to Republicans as he begins filling his cabinet positions.
I’ve never stayed up late to watch an election. I’ve never donated to a campaign before. I’ve never shed tears of joy when our new president walked on stage for the first time.
All that changed tonight. Godspeed, President Obama.
