Obama is the next president of the United States!
I probably can't separate my political leanings from my excitement and pride towards my country. It was only four decades ago that we were spilling blood over civil rights. We made history last night when we elected our first black president. I was impressed listening to both McCain and Obama and heard their call for us to work together as a country. I could feel my hope grow as I listened to the words of Obama calling us to action and they brought back the words of Kennedy - "Ask what you can do for your country". I am so proud of us and hopeful for our future!
