Barack Obama

I've been listening to political projections all evening and the results are finally in. Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the United States of America. I feel very proud today to be part of a huge step forward for our country. I waited in line for over an hour this morning, beginning at 6:25 a.m., and even then there was a stirring of excited anticipation amongst the people in line. This is the 4th presidential election I've voted in and I've never seen the kind of voter turn-out and excitement that is evident throughout our country today. Even now, listening to John McCain's concession speech, I am struck by his graciousness and the respect with whichc he speaks of and to Barack Obama. This has certainly been an election I will remember in years to come. My hopes for the future of our country are higher than they've been in a long time.

Well-said! I thought McCain's speech was eloquent, respectful, truly great. Wait, I think I feel... could it be? HOPE?!? :)
