"This is our moment. This is our time."

"It's been a long time coming. Change has come to America."
-- Barack Obama's acceptance speech, Chicago, 11/5/08

And a parting shot :

Bye bye Barracuda!

I will probably share a little more about my feelings on this tomorrow. We are exhausted and way past our bedtimes. I'm relieved, still a little awed at the results, and uncertain what to think. I believe Obama is concerned about the well-being of ordinary Americans and will do everything he can to not screw us. That, more than anything, sums up why I supported him.

That speech was worth waiting up for. I hope Rad gave you a little leeway on punctuality this morning!

Why I voted for Obama:
He wasn't in the same party as W.
His wife seems to be made of "real stuff".
His running mate was not Sarah Palin.
oh yeah..mumble mumble somethin about the hometown guy.

Laurat: Were you in the park listening to him speak last night? Sarah Palin's made of some real "stuff," too...
