WOO HOOOO!

"America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past. Our time to bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face. Our time to offer a new direction for this country that we love.

"The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs for the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment -- this was the time -- when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals."

    I cried through his speech. It's been a long time since a politician made me cry for joy.

  3. I'm Canadian and don't get a say in the Presidency, but I'm delighted to see that Obama has such a down to earth view of the world and his place in it. His goals are admirable. I'd be very happy to have him as President. I'm impressed with him enormously. samm

  6. all those angry women need to remember that the next President will likely appoint at least one Supreme Court judge. What better way for McCain to pander to the traditional Republican base than to appoint a Conservative Supreme?
