Cry? What for? Sounds a little flakey--not to mention, premature. Let's see what he can do. We may all be crying here soon.

I agree! It was stated on CNN that Palin attracted the rep loonies!

Anyway on with it! I smiled when I heard the projection, jumped and down when he was announced pres. and def. choked up during his acceptance speech!
To all the negativity that is being displayed by some? I stomached 8 miserable years of Bush so excuse me as I exhale and have hope for President Obama!

I was fine, until my mother called - she couldn't speak she was so happy (and crying). Then she handed the phone to my brother and I started bawling like a baby.

I fell asleep after dinner. I woke up just before 11:00 and heard CNN declare Obama the winner. Within 10 seconds, the phone rang. I didn't even say hello. I just starting shouting "Yay!!!" Then my friend joined in and we cheered for a while...no words.

What got me was Obama's speech. Regardless of the similarities and disagreements I have with what might transpire during his Presidency, his speech was awe inspiring. He exemplified courage, faith, confidence and integrity. In that one speech, he truly became the President of our United States of America.

No, I didn't cry. I think it's stupid to cry... people act like superman just saved the planet from dying lmao seriously... -_-

I hope this eliminates the "we needa black president" talk now... and I truly hope that Obama can unify the blacks and the whites in this country, it really needs it.
