This is an evening I will never forget. I feel privileged to be watching history unfold- and to have participated in making that history.

This is not only Barack Obama's victory. This is my victory as well.

He started crying again during Obamas speech. I can't imagine how he must feel.

Oprah actually ruined things for me a little. I can't stand her.

Jesse is crying for what might have been...he wanted this to be him...and also a chance to "cut his (Obama's) nuts off." Brought him to tears.

Jess Jackson is a joke. The fact that we have a president elect who affiliates himself with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton is sickening. Those two men are the most racist people I know of.

Jesse in particular has made a family business out of race baiting and frankly has done little for the african american community. Sharpton isn't any better.

Oprah, love her or hate her, deserves an immense amount of respect.

Both Oprah and Obama preach personal responsibility, something vastly different that Jesse or Sharpton.
