It's 5 AM and I haven't been to bed yet

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Americans have made their choice for president clear, and I've never been more proud of the progress of our country as I am right now. I'm relieved, exhausted, and overwhelmed with emotion. I can't wait for what's to come, and I welcome the challenge to help regain our position as the greatest nation on Earth. Yes we can!

I'm watching his speech right now and I can see tears in people's eyes.

It's truly moving... the USA deserved a great president.

candy: maybe soon...give me a couple of years! I'd love to live in America under an Obama presidency!!

zhu: I was watching it when you commented, too - you're so right, our country definitely deserved this win and so did the rest of the world!

evolutionary: I started drifting off to sleep around 3am, but then it started getting juicy around 4 and I was on a high for the rest of the 3 hours I was awake! I love democracy!!

Yay! It was so exciting out last night, and I'm sure you'll find when you finally make it out of the house that our street cred just got upped. Way up! I stumbled into class this morning on 4 hours of sleep, but I have been hi fived and given the thumbs up by random people just for being American. That is instantaneous change.
