What a day yesterday was! History was made and America woke up this morning full of hope and excitement. Not everyone is happy I'm sure, but from everything I'm hearing on the news this morning (even from conservative pundits) President-elect Obama will hopefully be an inclusive President who will work with both sides in solving the most difficult challenges America may ever have faced.
It was so inspiring to watch the votes come in last night. States that haven't voted a Democratic President since 1964 went blue this time: Indiana, Colorado, Virginia. And with Ohio and Florida added to the list, by 10 p.m. we knew who had won. It was amazing to see it flash on the screen and hear the cheers from Times Square, Grant Park, and in front of the White House. I didn't know if it would really happen: could America really vote for a black President? But in the end, they could and they did.
And now . . . on to the Inauguration on January 20. We will be there.
