I voted for the O'man and I'm proud to wear my button.

I have never thought of any of the previous presidents as
"My President"-- but I do with this one. I am beyond excited.

He is to the Americans as Princess Di was to the Brits-- the People's President.. approachable, relatable, sincere and genuine.
I wish him the best and will keep him in my prayers.

Kwana said...

Yes it is! I'm just back from voting. I'm so happy and so proud today.

my almost 2 year old says yay obama every time she sees his picture. as much as i love the barack, i did not teach her that. i think she just responds to his happy, hope-filled self.

Okay. I guess that I am the only pessimist in the bunch. I hope that it is a great day.

Not for half of us, it's not. Not all of us are voting for Obama.

from your neighbours up North, GO
OBAMA GO!

Brilliant Asylum said...

Ahhh. It felt great to vote!

elaine said...

Jesus! I'm so emotional today - I can't get any work done. I just want results to start coming in. I'm so sad for O's grandma - she never got to see him become President - what a shame.

From Ireland, it is such an important election to the world. Please let this be a return to sanity, diplomacy and compassion in politics. Good luck America. The world needs you to vote Obama. He is a good man.

Greatest day for me as an American since Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. Check this out: Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Barack could run. Barack ran so our children could fly. Gorgeous, isn't it? How Shakespearean of granny to die the day before. How Moses and Luke Skywalker-esque. Now I would like everyone to go to youtube and watch Sam Cooke "A Change is Gonna Come" (Rolling Stone #12 on list of 500 greatest songs of all time). And have a good cry. Did everyone see the article about the 109 yr old daughter of a slave who voted for Obama? It is truly a GREAT day! Thanks Decorno!!!

I've got the goosebumpies all *OVER*. I cannot wait. Brings tears to my eyes. Really.

It's pathetic the way so many Americans seem to think this guy is some kind of savior. I wish I could spare those who are so excited now the disillusionment that is inevitably on its way.

amandromeda said...

I just want to voice my support for Mcain. At 4:30 this afternoon I will place my vote for him. Please go easy on me.

zakary said...

I am so nervous about today, I can't stand it.

Fingers crossed!

YOU BETCHA!!!!

kristin said...

I agree with anon 5:36. It's great to feel attachment to My President for the first time! Obama is brilliant, he's good, and he'll help us be a better people. I love today.

I voted for McCain. Regardless of who wins, I hope "he" is able to fix this mess we're in. I will not move to Canada if Obama wins, unlike some of you who post here if McCain wins. This is my country and I will work to make it a better place.

Hope is never "pathetic", and part of the joy we feel is simply in knowing that the Bush war machine will soon be dismantled, and does not hinge on Barack Obama "saving" us. I fully understand that he may not be able to live up to all of the things he aspires to on behalf of our country, but I believe he will give it his best shot and that he will at least help to turn us all in a better direction. I believe that he wants to make a positive change for everyone in this country, not just those of any particular sector. He is not as experienced as others in American politics, but that is a good point, as the "experienced" politicians are those who got us into the mess we are in. Perhaps his inexperience will allow for fresh solutions, and he is intelligent enough to select advisors whom are expert in their arenas.

It will be a long, hard climb to get us back to our pre-Bush administration health, but we will all be better for it.

What, exactly, do you think you'd get with McCain and his "kill it & grill it" Hee Haw Honey???? Just more of the tight-assed far right fundamentalists, clutching their bibles and trying to convert the rest of us, rattling sabers with the rest of the world and justifying war with false declarations of "weapons of mass destruction".

I am happy to take my chances with President Obama.

McCain/Palin 2008! At this point I am just praying for that the dems(and I love a lot of you in blogland!) don't get the 60 seats in the Senate. Or that exit pollsters are high on something! Life goes on either way, right? But I am just angered by the voting system that hurts both sides. No computers! wtf? Let's do it old school and if it takes us a little more to tabulate, then so be it! I would rather deal with a hanging chad that people could look at rather than freaking power outages in CA or freaking hackers(gop and dems) that could corrupt the system. Let us all unite for voting reform. That is something we could come together on, right?

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I too have my fingers crossed and the champagne waiting - here's to hoping this day ends fantastic too!

Hell, even the scenery will be better with a handsome man like Obama at the helm, instead of Bush, who bears a striking resemblence to Curious George the sock monkey! I may even start watching the State of the Union addresses! If McSame and the Wicked Winking Witch of Wasilla get in I may throw my television out the window!

jen said...

Fingers crossed that my state (NC) turns blue and helps Obama win!! I voted this morning and the lines were LONG. People seemed excited to make history one way or another.

Anonymous said...

Voted for McCain at 8 a.m. this morning. Did my civic duty with my 7 year old pulling the lever! I think I'm not going to be celebrating tonight, but since I love this country, I want Obama to do well if he wins (unlike most of you Dems who never gave GWB a chance). Never forget that the US is truly the best country (I moved here from India in 1984), and that Republicans love this country just as much as you do.

Anonymous said...

I have a lot of respect for Senator McCain. Had it not been for the economic meltdown, he may have gotten my vote. I feel good about my Obama vote. I feel privileged to live in a country where my vote can help bring about change. And one more thing... I think he's definitely kissable, and I haven't wanted to kiss my president since... ahhh... President Clinton! I've always secretly lusted for Bill.

Bianca said...

I just voted for the first time! I was so happy to turn 18 ( I turned 18 in June)just so I could vote. Today I woke up, got dressed and voted! Obama is truly a man of our time. He is a man of sincerity, humility and compassion. That and Palin is quite the crazy byatch.

Ohh, ooh I also just want to say I love your blog and I aspire to be like you when I grow up

And now, at 9:30pm, today really is a great day. I have successfully finished off a bottle of Veuve by myself and I fully expect us to get redrunk on Friday night at youknowwhere.

fyck YAH!

In 2000, I drove to work crying the day after the election (for reals), and tomorrow I'll be crying thanks to my hangover.

Mona said...

OMG! I haven't felt this much hope for this country in I don't know how long. It's a great day for this country!!!

It will be so great to get into cabs in Europe and be proud that I am from Texas. Many times I had to preface "I did not vote for Bush" before the conversation started.....
They are as proud as we are..............

As I said on another blog, I just wish after filling in my ballot I'd remembered to take out my phone and snap a picture.

What a great day.

I couldn't agree more! Wonderful pics!

I laughed out loud at "kill 'em and grill 'em".

Wow. All I can say is what a day. I am so glad to be an American.

now what are you going to post about? the dow falling (again)? Russia moving missiles seeing a new socialistic weakness in the US? Gaza firing missiles? All on the day after?

Oh. I see how this works. You only post positive Obama posts now...
classic.

GWB did get a chance in fact he got a SECOND chance and he is going down the WORST president in the history of our nation. All republicans need to admit that he was a big mistake. John McCain should have been our president 8 years ago (of course, I really mean Gore but if a Rep was going to win...) he would have done a far better job than GWB. McCain's time has passed however and the people have spoken. We NEED real change and althought I dont think Obama can fix everything that W has done, I think he will try and I think he will go further than McCain would have.
I feel like the future is brighter for my kids. I cried last night and felt so proud to be an American. For the first time in a long time, I can say that.

Christine in DC said...

I am so so so so so so so so so so so so so...ad finitum....Happy! The celebrations here in DC were crazy last night. And, I swear, everyone was walking a little lighter this morning.

Hilarious. Censoring comments that don't blindly support your future President. Typical.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
