I am glad you are so positive. I won't be celebrating until the last precinct is counted. Yeah, I'm a skeptic who believes, to borrow a line from Yogi Berra: "It isn't over until it's over."

I'm waiting to vote until everyone is off to work in my hard-working class neighborhood. Most people I know voted early but I am a traditionalist by nature and as long as I can hobble into the polls, I will do so.

Whooo hooo! Good for you--wish I'd remembered to bring a camera when I voted early, in an attempt to shed some of this pre-election insanity.

YAY!! I'm waiting for Leah to get out of school so I can take her with me to vote. The only downer in our state is the likely passage of the hateful Proposition 8. But what a great day! My sister and her husband were invited to the VIP section at tonight's huge rally in Chicago. They're sitting in the same row as Al Gore and Oprah and are taking their two sons (12 and 8) to witness history firsthand. Woo-hoo!! You were the first die-hard Obama supporter that I ever knew and I remember at the beginning how disheartened you were because you didn't think he could win in this country. You must be dancing through the aisles of your plane. (Of course I will breathe easier once the election is called!)

Yea! We did it!

Congratulations; we stayed awake all night like two kids watching the results come in. When we realised that Barack had won, we were cheering; the cats were a little bemused at why the humans were awake and making noise I think. Wonderful, just wonderful. Am so full of joy and excitement it's hard to coherently type anything. Big Hugs

I can't stop watching that wonderful speech in Chicago.

All I can say is: President Barack Obama!

Am so excited to find all of you here at my site celebrating this amazing moment with me! Thank you so much for bearing with my tirades, hopes and dreams these past months - and for sharing your comments. I have a feeling we are in for a great ride! It's *our* turn now!

Congratulations! We did it. I'm still filled up with emotion.

I was first in line and up early, early, to be there. But this is Santa Fe and the second person didn't show up until 45 minutes before the polls opened.

I was out of there in ten minutes.

we did it! such peacefulness and contentment on wednesday after the thrill and passion of the evening evolved into a quiet and comforting reality. we have a long way to go, a challenging journey ahead, many very difficult bumps to navigate. but, anything is possible when we believe, when we work together in a concerted, hopeful, and determined way. we have effective leadership in the making, we are dedicated to a common goal. healing begins in the open hand of unity reaching out for us all. the world rejoices with us.

we are on our way...

Thanks so much for all these comments! I'm still feeling so happy - one week later!
