    I agree. I can't help but tear up watching the camera pan the faces of happiness and hope filled with smiles and tears of joy gathered at Grant Park in Chicago on CNN. I wish I could be there to hear Barack speak for the first time as Presidential elect.

    I lost my voice I screamed so loud!!! I am just in a state of shock and disbelief. I am so happy there are no words.

    Amazing night. I really have no words. Sharing this day, this night with my fellow volunteers, who worked so tirelessly for this moment, is something that I'll remember for the rest of my life. Thank you, President Obama. I'm so proud to be able to call you my president.

    It was a great night, and I am happy this morning. I'm excited about the possibilities and about this bringing people together of all races. At least those willing to be brought together.

    I can't help feeling bad for those whose candidate did not win though, and it seemed as though McCain was getting choked up during his concession speech. I feel bad for my parents too, because they really were optimistic that McCain would win. But such are elections I suppose. Someone is always on the losing side. I think we'll be better off than if McCain had won though, and hopefully it will work out that way and those who voted for McCain will be happy anyhow.

    i know how you feel krista. i always feel bad for the person losing (except for john kerry, for some reason i just didn't care about him, even though i voted for him.). i knew my very first presidential election that bill clinton was going to win. i felt SO BAD for dole, i really almost voted for him. at the last min. i remembered how much i had been looking forward to voting for clinton. i campaigned for him while i was still in high school the first time he ran, no way was was i giving up that chance! LOL!

    I am sorry I don't share your happiness. I am worried/concerned for our country. I am afraid that our military will be weakened and we will be more vaurable to a terrioist attack. I am concerned our encomey will get worse, that we might go into a depression, that we will not be allow to drill for oil, and that the government will take more control of our lives, and that fairness doctine will come back and silence people who crictize the government. One good thing is that the Senate will likely not be fillabuster proof, hopefully the GOP will get some backbone and use it like it has never been used before. It is sad, that too many people in our country don't care about freedom and want to turn to the government when the encomey gets tight, and that they care too much about what the rest of the world thinks.

    You mean -- like it is right now?
    I believe we have to let go of this fear, and move on. I honestly don't believe we are going to get worse; I believe we are going to start down the road back to where we used to be as a nation.

    mess this country up worse than it is now after eight years of "bush" league

    politics and decision making, and he still wouldn't BEGIN to come close to

    We'll see. I'm going to enjoy judging Obama as President Bush has been judged. You can all yap your jaws about how awful you think President Bush was, but you can NEVER take away the fact that he kept this country safe the past 7 years, when almost everyone believed we would be attacked again.

    Frankly, I am looking forward to seeing what the new pasttime will be now that President Bush will be gone. Oh wait! He will still be blamed for everything.

    Congrats to Obama and the Dems! And thank you, John McCain, for a classy concession speech.

    That was one fine speech. The best I have ever heard from McCain.

    Yes the speech by McCain was very very classy. I always feel sad for all the campaign workers and the candidates and their families who wind up on the short end of things...but I didn't want to feel that this time. We know what that's like...

    As for President Barack Obama...I woke up at 3am at night and from then on until 11am I watched non-stop. I fell asleep at 8 and when I woke up I broke down and cried because I actually missed the moment where it was official he had 270 electoral votes...and I really wanted to see that. He was actually in the middle of his victory speech...but soon my tears of frustration turned to tears of pride and admiration for this truely historical moment.

    When he finished his speech and both the Obamas and Biden's were on the stage...that's when it really hit me and boy was it special.

    Today I felt hopefull...but today I prayed very hard for him, for his safety, for the hope he's given us all. I pray he's able to meet the expectations everyone in the world has placed on him.

    I'm just so moved. God bless America.

    The beauty of this country is that people can have sour grapes, apples, etc...

    And please, don't go there re: the twin towers....You sound like Rev Wright and Rosie O'Donnell..

    I'm going to respect and support the office of the President as I was taught to do as a child. And as I said earlier, I wish only good things for President-elect Obama...and for our country...

    There is enough blame to go around for what's wrong with this country and not all of it began in 01...

    So I'm choosing to go forward and be positive...

    Then we'll agree to disagree...

    Believe it or not, there really are some things that aren't George Bush's fault. I prefer to blame Nancy Kerrigan.
