WHOO!!! YEAH!!!

I tell ya, on election day, I woke up before 6AM to get out the vote, and it obviously came through for us! This has kept my faith alive, that even if Omaha votes Republican, that it has a voice of it's own. That is just BEAUTIFUL.

How about having our own voice for a change!

AS much as you don't agree with Obama's policies, I do. And many others do, and we have every right to have our voices heard rather than drown out by the rest of the state. I'm proud of Omaha and am excited to see what we will do next to make this country a better place.

It has little to do with pop culture as much as it does a difference in opinion, and it was exhilarating to be a part of such a heated campain.

And honestly, how can someone who votes republican say they are thinking for themselves by voting republican in our traditionally ultra red state ?

Obama is anything but change. He'll merely be an extension of the moonbat left in congress.

And I don't know how anyone can honestly say it wasn't about pop culture with the oprah, hollywood, and virtually every news source except FOX stumping for him.

He's a manufactured image. But we'll see that he sorely lacks substance once he actually takes office.

Congrats to a great man! Obama has more followers in Omaha than any democrat in a long time, glad to see people thinking for themselves!

you can spew that all you want, doesn't make it legitimate.

I know why I voted for him, I knew my mindset, and no amount of telling me that hollywood and MSNBC put me there is going to change the facts.

I think NOW that is a possibility. If Omaha had never broken from the rest of the state, then that would be difficult to assert. If NOW Omaha goes red next year legitimately, then it is more likely that it was TRULY the voice of the people.

I can honestly say that pop culture had nothing to do with my vote. I don't own a television...and yet I never found myself left out of a political conversation because of my lack of media knowledge.

Whoever it was that said it way back when (actually I think it was Bill Clinton back in '92) was right..."It's the economy stupid"!
