I was apathetic about the whole election, mostly because of the fact that I couldn’t vote and that Obama really wasn’t my choice (I wanted Hilary Clinton), but I figure Obama/Biden is better than McCain/Palin combo. However, once the voting process started, I tried to keep up with the counts and whatnot, and I was caught up in the celebratory happiness when the verdict came in.
I listened to part of McCain’s concession speech, and I thought it was delivered in a very mature manner, minus the booing from the audience (sore losers!).
I was in TEARS when I listened to Obama’s acceptance speech, though. It was moving, and it actually made me feel proud and happy to be an American for the first time in my life. That part about the 106 years old woman . . . just wow. And seeing Reverend Jesse Jackson on screen in tears nearly broke my heart.
Maybe there is hope for America after all.
YAY FOR THE DEMOCRATS GREAT COMEBACK INTO THE AMERICAN POLITICS! WHOO HOO!
