On November 4th, 2008, Barack Obama was elected 44th President of the United Sates of America. This momentous occasion can be summed up in 3 words… Yes We Can!
If you didn’t watch Barack’s speech from Chicago on TV tonight, I highly recommend looking for it online. It was quite inspirational. I really mean that. I was actually a bit choked-up. I’m sure it will be posted to barackobama.com in the next day or two.
I couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome of this election, but I must admit I thought it was going to be a much closer race. In fact, I’ve been a little worried that McCain was going to win.
I actually respect John McCain for everything he’s been through, and done, for this country, but I did not want him to be our next president. His views just aren’t inline with what I think our country (and the world) needs right now. I will give him credit for the very graceful speech he gave tonight in Arizona, conceding the election to Obama. He did a good job. It was too bad for him that his audience was apparently full of Arizona frat-boys, who insisted on inappropriately booing and yelling out comments during his speech.
As we move forward into what will hopefully be a turning point in the history of our country, let’s all keep those 3 little words in mind whenever faced with a new challenge… Yes We Can!
Oh, and the best news of all… no one’s house will be peed on. ;)
