I've got a few feelings about the election.

1. I'm excited about the fact that we've done something that would have been considered unthinkable when I was a kid. We've elected the first African American president ever!

2. While there are bound to be frustrations and disappointments ahead (there always are) I think we've chosen someone who will be an excellent leader.

3. Just a note, I'm celebrating Obama's victory, NOT McCain's defeat. I hope we can really come together and do some good. IMO good people can hold very different opinions and still find ways to work together for the common good.

4. For all it's flaws, the process of American democracy in action is awe-inspiring. I feel very proud.

It was an amazing thing to see.

Though it was before my time, I wonder if people felt this way when Kennedy won the election--this sense of coming change.

I'll bet it is.

While I join you in enthusiastically celebrating Obama's victory, I am immensely relieved that Palin is nowhere near the White House.
