    Jen, thank you for voting!!!! As your neighbour north of the border, I am elated and thrilled to see President Obama in the Oval Office! What a day!

  10. peabody says:

    It was nice to see my hours of volunteering pay off!

  11. Susy says:

    This isn’t the moment that defines us, it’s what we do with it. Will we all be able to come together & still be working at it next year at this time? Only time will tell.

    Sadly I have my doubts.

  12. manisha says:

    Dude! Yay!

    Hooray! Now if only they would tell California about Prop 8..

  16. Maja says:

    :) I share your sentiment, even though i’m not from the US. :)

  17. johanna says:

    bit bleary-eyed as i’ve been up all night watching the results trickle in… i am not american either, but you have to care about these things, don’t you? american politics affects most people more than their own local elections, so we should keep a close eye. completely welled up and emotional now, maybe i’m taking it a bit too far, but what a day – good luck to president obama! the most difficult times are still to come, i guess!

  18. Rosa says:




  19. Anne says:

    An incredible evening in history. I am so proud of our country. Now more than ever we can be the country we are meant to be. Our long nightmare is over.

  20. Fiona says:

    I never thought I’d see it in my lifetime, and I just can’t take it in. So, so wonderful.

    No surprise: I hang out with people like me. Historians. We’re all just flipping out. It’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced.

  21. Margie says:

    My congratulations to all that voted for Obama. This has been a journey of a lifetime. I look forward to our nations future and believe that the best is yet to come!


  22. Amy says:

    Elation here too!!! Wooooooooo! I’m way too tired from staying up to watch the whole thing, but so happy and hopeful. :)

  23. Lori says:

    WHOOP WHOOP WHOOPIE. I just love that man! Love what he stands for. HOPE!

  24. Figs says:

    YEAH!! I was so happy I even liked McCain’s speech.

    We’re super bummed about 8 though. People threw as much money and energy at it as they could. Damn that central valley.

    Wonder what kind of puppy the Obama girls are getting?

  25. Nate says:

    Well whaddya know, the Hawaii boy did it! Can he bring the country back together?

  26. Pam says:


  27. rose says:

    My faith in our nation is restored and I am inspired in a way I never thought possible.
    We are steps closer to a “more perfect union.”\

  29. Chris says:

    w00t w00t Obama!!!

    Yes, we can!

  31. Mollie says:


  32. mess says:

    enjoy very much reading you – also enjoy knowing you’re celebrating too. gobama!

  33. Lisa says:

    I’ve never been prouder of our country. Go Obama!

  34. Lisa says:

    Obamarama time! Love it. Been getting a little choked up off/on ever since last night – I think seeing Jesse Jackson with tears running down his face really did it to me.

    I’m so proud of our country. A little ashamed of California and Prop 8 – but still overly proud of our country and just how far we’ve come. I don’t envy his job but I do believe that change is upon us.

    Jen – I’m sure you get them all the time, but I couldn’t help myself and gave you an Excellent Blog award. If you care for it – come on over to my 11/5 post. :) If you don’t care to post it – just know I totally {heart} your blog!
