I finally was able to vote for someone I really was inspired by and he has won. At 11:21 EST, Obama was declared victor and McCain conceeded. Obama picked up at least 7 states that Bush won in 2004 including the amazing victories in North Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada and Virginia. Al Franken is still within a vote or two of a Senate seat in Minnesota. And my home state, Florida will this time not be a laughingstock like in 2000 and had gone for Obama. A true mandate for one of the most organized and professional campaigns ever.
I am against displays of patriotism but must say that it almost moves me to tears that we have come so far. Yes we can – and we did. Truly a historical landmark.
Now we just need to arraign Bush and Cheney on corruption charges and it will be a true Cinderella story.
