wow. just wow. Amazing to watch the faces in the crowds. Interesting times we’re living in and suddenly, at least in this very moment, faith in the country has been restored and there is a feeling of hope.

(…but Prop 8 is passing? In California??)

    It’s such a beautiful feeling, and so great to see it on the faces of others! Down with cynicism and up with hope!
    And yes, I’m from CA and so disappointed in how it’s looking for Prop 8! 🙁

    I feel a sincere sense of hope deep within me, and I like imagining how millions of others (around both the country & the world) are feeling the same way.

    Wonderful, wonderful to see. We were just down in NC and it felt like the Obama people were everywhere. Still too close to call this morning, but let me tell you (as a native of SC), that if VA and NC go for Obama that’s huge.

    I’m not thrilled about Prop 8, but federal law is where I’m looking for the final word. And things like Prop 8 can be removed by the same process, so I think it’s just a matter of time before it goes away.

    Just proves that anything is possible. I think we will see some great things happen in the next 4 years.

    I’m overwhelmed. I feel like today should be declared a holiday.

    I am also from CA and disappointed, maybe now it will go to the supreme court? I am still overjoyed, perhaps the first time in my life that I voted for someone that won!

    I’m so proud again. I didn’t like the deep hole we were in and am so relieved that someone like Obama (President Obama) is in charge. He knows what’s important, who’s important and how to pull us out of that hole.

    My teenage boys came home from school yesterday, filled with stories about how kids in their classes are desolate at our new president-elect. Terrible jokes about the ‘white’ house….it’s really disheartening. Can I say how much I miss the east coast? (We live in Tucson, AZ….very Republican….very narrow……)

    woolies, that is so disappointing to hear. When you live in such a liberal state/city like NY, it’s easy to forget how conservative/republican the middle of the country is, as was mapped out in those very telling election maps. Hate to say this, but I fear for obama’s safety and even though I know that safety glass at his speech would have been there for McCain as well, it was sort of a frightening reminder, BUT I also found myself thinking “it’s not big enough!”
