What a night Tuesday night was. I always love election nights....it's like the Superbowl of politics. You never get a better idea of the hearts and minds of your fellow citizens like you do on election night. Whether you are happy or disappointed with the results of the election you have to admire the fact that 300 million Americans can disagree so sharply, yet when a change of power occurs like it is in two months....there is no revolt, no military coup, no sabotage....it's truly amazing. Our country is going from conservative to liberal if you believe the election is an indication of the nation's leanings....and yet we all still go and grow together.
You have Obama giving his joyful acceptance speech in front of 1 million people....and you have McCain giving a very respectful and heartfelt conciliation speech to his former opponent...and he promised to cooperate and continue to work together. We came within less than 1 million votes of having the first woman run for president, and witnessed the first woman on the Republican side to run for VP...and now we have our first Black President. To think where our country has come in so short a time....what a site to witness.
