    Let me tell you guys why my undecided hubby decided to vote Obama. When he left the house on Tuesday morning he was undecided. He said here's how he made his decision:

    He had to assume that if one was lying that they both were. Since he couldn't prove either of them were lying, he went on the premise that both of them would do what they said. He liked what Obama said and how he came across and he said that he was going to be optimistic and that if Obama was the man he came across as, that he would be a great leader.

    He said that he liked McCain in 2000, but the 2008 McCain appeared to have sold his soul and DH penalized him for that.

    He also said that he wished Palin would now "drop off the face of the earth". LOL. DH has been very mild throughout the campaign, I had no idea that he disliked her that much

    Oh, and he said that he honestly hadn't done much research and that I had and that if you can't trust your wife, who can you trust. I love him

    I told him that we've been together for 17 years and we should have very similar philosophies, and I didn't see any reason why we shouldn't vote the same way.

    If I had bet on who he would end up voting for, I would've been wrong. I thought for sure he would vote for McCain as the "safe" candidate.

    I loved seeing the massive, joyous crowds all over the country last night, and even in Kenya! The crying and jumping for joy at Ebenezer Church set off my water works.

    CNN interviewed some celebrities at a party in LA. I liked what Gina Gershon said: "If Obama runs the country like he ran his campaign, we're going to be great!"

    i agree. i love that dress, it's simple, chic and original. and a nice change from the usual staid d.c. politician's wife garb.

    i agree. that speech almost made me like him, or at least it reminded me of the pre-palin, pre-far right wing mccain that i didn't totally dislike. you could see the weariness on his face and also, IMO, the disappointment at the jeering crowds, especially when they started booing.
    palin looked a bit shell-shocked. like she still can't wrap her little pea brain around the fact that no, god didn't want her to be vp. and now she has to go back to bumfuck, alaska with her redneck husband and she doesn't even get to keep all her new clothes.

    That shut her up. I swear I've never seen such vile behavior as Obama haters. Its one thing if they want McCain to win, I can understand that, I know people like McCain, I did until he brought Tootsie on board. But to like McCain is not the same thing as hating Obama. Those people hate so much, they actually ruined a defining moment for McCain.
    I know, I know. It's like I have seen this incredibly ugly side of human nature in this campaign and it's going to be hard to forget it. But I want to let go of it and just be happy.

    BYE BYE BUSH!

    This is a great day!

    And this is funny:

    I have that calendar. It is funny and sad. Everyday it has one of his quotes. amazing how stupid he is.

    No offense taken. This change hit me on two levels:

    1) Seeing Obama win the White House was a turning of the page in American history. From the slave ships, to the plantations, to Jim Crow, to the Civil Rights Movement, it seemed as if all was build up for last night. If Hillary put 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling, Obama shattered it completely. And his win showed people, of all races, that there really is no limitation to the goals you can reach for. Now Obama's win doesn't end racism in America, but it shows that America is taking a major step in the right direction. And the fact that over 60% of Obama supporters are white speaks volumes. And for black people Obama's win represents a sense of true acceptance as Americans.

    2) Obama's win signals the end of the Bush Error. America had become a different place under George Bush, and a not for the better. Things had become too divisive with both domestic and foreign policy. Obama's, I mean President Obama's, landslide victory was a rejection of the politics of the last 8 years. It really feels like a new day in America. Now that's not to say that Obama's going to wave a magic wand and all of the problems will vanish, but if he runs this country with half of the success that he ran his campaign then he's going to be a damn good president.

    King, you really are a class act. I love you to pieces. You always speak with such class and intelligence. You're also always so humble and right on point.
