    Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I’m so proud of us too. We’re back, baby! America is back!!

  2. Obama deserves this victory; he was a better candidate. But now that speeches are over, let hope (for the sake of post-Bush America) that actions are indeed better than words.

    At least we, the voters, now get to kick back and take a break. The Obama family, on the other hand, has to shift into an even higher gear. Winning was not the end for them, but only the beginning. I wish them well, but in no way envy the task they have ahead of them.
