Yippy skippy! We've got ourselves a new President!!!

Edit: Wow! Just look at this thread! We have on here people who have sometimes disagreed with each other on the forum, who come from different places in the nation, who come from different backgrounds, and hold a wide range of religious and non-religious beliefs - and we've all been brought together here - we're all celebrating together!!! This thread is bringing tears to my eyes. Thank you, my friends! If this thread is a representative microcosm of the U.S., I think the next four years in our country are going to be really grand!!! :)

John McCain just gave a great speech. Today is a new day! The world was watching and we showed them how great our country is. Jon Stewart said it well, we are a show country, not just a tell country.

i must admit, I honestly didn't think we'd pull it off. I was sure this would be a long, knock down, dragged out, neck-and-neck horse race, until at least seven o'clock, tomorrow morning.

Tim is right. McCain was very, very gracious, almost gallant in defeat. Ironically, I think it was the best speech he gave during the entire campaign.

"With malice toward none and charity for all..."

Hey Karen,

Woo-hoo! I just had a little talk with my teenaged son about what a moment this is.

I grew up in the segregated South. This is absolutely amazing. I truly think this is a new start for this country.

It's an important step. But there's a lot of work ahead, for all of us: "red state" and "blue state" alike.

One nation. Under God. And in the world.

Dear EK and Rebecca,

My eighty year-old mom just called, crying for joy...

"I truly think this is a new start for this country." - Rebecca

Yes!!!

"With malice toward none and charity for all..."

Perfect and lovely. My faith in our political system has been restored tonight.

Prob,

My dear friend, I think you just said it succinctly and exactly.

"One Nation. Under God. And In The World." That is the way it should be written on our currency.

"...there's a lot of work ahead, for all of us..."

Boy, ain't that the truth?! But maybe we'll finally have the leadership that will inspire and lead us - that will help us pull together and give us the direction we need to get through whatever lies ahead...

And if any of you were anywhere near the great blue state of PA, I would invite you all in to raise a nice,cold can of Michelob in salute to our new President.

Happy Days really are here again,
The skies are bright and clear, again!
Let us sing a song of cheer, again...

timothy: Born and raised in PA, now living in Ohio, lived in Wisconsin and spent time in Florida, all carried for Obama. I guess I should say "You're Welcome" :-)

(My husband was born in Philly and lived in PA until he was 11, when his family moved to Connecticut. I've always been sort of partial to those born in Pennsylvania... :))

You know, someday, if I can ever find someone to take care of mom for about a month, Jill and I really would like to come out there and meet you and Scott, and your two incredible sons. I showed Jill your 'Groucho' picture and she laughed so long and hard I was almost afraid she was going to pass out.

Karen T. says:
She laughed?!! Do you mean to tell me Jill was not blown away by my incredible beauty - that certain quality of feminine charm so nicely captured in that photo?! I don't know what to say! Except thank you. :) I'd love to meet Jill - she sounds like a really special person - and I'd love to meet YOU in living color, also, my friend.

Karen,

After Jill stopped laughing and she regained her normal color again, her exact words were, "Now, that looks like someone I could become real good friends with." (That woman is crazier than I am...and you know me...)

Oh, and to add an extra layer of frosting to the cake, I guess we also now have the Senate sewed up pretty tight,too. And six new governorships, as well---I think.

I must say, I am enjoying this tremendously (currently watching Fox New.) Poor Karl Rove is trying to smile and not at all succeeding. You can clearly see the anger and animosity behind his thinly veiled smile. Even I could have told him those ugly, mud-slinging anti-Obama ads they ran were going to turn people off rather than inspire them to run to McCain's side of the aisle.

A.W. KAREN: Happy days are here again! :)

THORN: I think truly happy days are some ways off. . . but HALLELUJAH! and ZIP-A-DEE-DOODAH! It's a glorious, historic day for America!

TIMOTHY THE: John McCain just gave a great speech.

THORN: That WAS a great concession speach. I just wish all his supporters could have been so gracious.

zip a dee doodah! zip a dee day!!! My oh my what a wonderful day! Plenty of sunshine shining my way (well, okay, I live near Seattle, so that part maybe doesn't fit), zip a dee doo dah, zip a dee day!!!

Oh Thornley - there's a part of me that just can't believe it, you know? I keep thinking the Supreme Court's going to step in and take it all away...

I really want to believe, though.

Karen

REBECCA: I grew up in the segregated South. This is absolutely amazing. I truly think this is a new start for this country.

THORN: So did I. I remember the signs on the water fountains and the restrooms. There were seven theaters in town. Black people were able to sit in a balcony in two of them. I would not have believed until Obama appeared that I would see an African American president in my lifetime. He's a very intelligent person, and I think a very good man; with half a chance, he'll be a great president.
