History in the making

I am so happy that this country chose Obama for our next president. I will do my best not to gloat or rub it in people’s faces, but I will say the following two things:

1. During McCain’s speech when he first mentioned Obama’s name, I was disheartened and disappointed that his supporters booed at the mention. I think that’s sad. Conversely, during Obama’s speech when he first mentioned McCain, there was a round of applause and lots of cheering. I was impressed with McCain’s graciousness; not so impressed with the lack of grace from his crowd.

2. Three hundred thirty eight to one hundred fifty six at last count. The people have spoken, and they want Obama.

I am incredibly proud of this country.

    I was very impressed by McCain’s speech, and even more impressed when he quietened the dissidents booing Barack.

    For the first time in a long time, I feel so proud of my country and optimistic about what’s to come. :)

    I too was disheartened that McCain’s supporters booed at the mention of Obama. At least he gave a very good speech, and he didn’t seem pleased at all by his crowd’s lack of the graciousness he displayed.

    I came close to tears throughout most of Obama’s speech. It was just so uplifting, and I’m so happy that America realized how much we need him now.

    Seriously, I felt the same way about McCain’s speech. He delivered it beautifully and was trying to be classy and supportive and his supporters were just being petty and rude.

    SO happy.

    John McCain’s speech was pretty awesome. I don’t dislike McCain; he’s a great man. And personally, I don’t think his supporters deserve him, as proud of them as he is. As displayed by the crowd’s reaction to the mention of Obama and Biden, they are a disgrace to him.

    Obama’s Speech: very inspiring and beautiful, of course.
