American history has been made

We have a new President of the United States in Barack Obama. The first black US president.

Kinda refreshing to see it in that the country is united without race or skin color.

Lets hope he can fix George W.'s mess.

I'm proud of our country. Maybe we're *finally* through the racism of the past. I feel optimistic, for the first time in eight years.

I don't envy Obama his job. The country is a disaster. It's going to be tough to get this thing going again. But at least he has a huge amount of support around the country.

I have mixed emotions. This was a tough election. Both candidates had excellent strengths and crippling weaknesses.

I agree on the racism point being a plus that we've gotten past that, but I also think Obama has some shady aquaintances that scare me.

OTOH, McCain has been there and done that and is an American war hero. He's survived things that we can't imagine, however he does have too many ties to the admin that got us in this mess in the first place.

I was still undecided untill the minute I pressed the button.

I have great hopes for our future over the next 4 years, and you're right... he does have his work cut out for him.

God bless us all.
