In Response To Tonight's Victory  
*quiet and calm little happy dance and hugs and snuggles for those not happy*

I'm pleased, but I'm not going to rub this in my Republican friends' faces. It was a good race, and very interesting. And tomorrow I won't be saying anything one way or another about McCain or Palin. The voting is over; the election is done. There's nothing more to say.

And let us all feel the winds of change blowing through our country.

Obama, be our Superman. Because we all know we need one now.

Yay! I'm pretty sure everyone in New Zealand was rooting for Obama. It could be due to our heavily biased media but from what I can tell I think he is the best man for the job. I know Margot supports him, she was wearing an Obama badge when I saw her in Auckland.

Now if I can just figure out our elections...*sigh*

Damn straight. It's funny, but a lot of the world is way more to the left than the USA. Besides which, it's nice having the people in control of the world's largest army not being the lot that likes to define reality through might and power, and who prefer wussy things like conversation and diplomacy instead.

If you had any idea how much of an embarrassment Bush has been to the majority of the US for the last few years (for me, it's been since he got in the White House, to begin with)... *hides*

And it's made me very uneasy that he's been ruining our rep with the rest of the world. I have so many friends that are out there and every time he opens his mouth, I cringe. With Obama, he embodies a lot of the thing that America should stand for. Down to the fact that he's not just one race. For me, that means a lot in this country. It shows unity. And that he won by a landslide really does show hope for us.

Oh, I do know, I've heard my American friends talking. I remember in...04? 05? I once heard an American teacher wail, "I have to tell people I'm from Canada when I go overseas!"

*dies laughing* Does it count if you've been trying to do it since Bush took office? It's been downhill for us ever since. No matter what happens in the next four years, it can't be any worse than what we've already done to ourselves.

Prolly, why not? *g* Yeah, the U.S....hasn't had a great run of it lately. Heh.

I think he can be our Superman, more than anyone else in the last 50 years. *prays a special prayer for him*

I totally agree. I have more faith in him than I've had in a lot of things for a while now.

I can tell you everyone Down Under were voting for Obama. I have to adimit I shed a tear during his victory speech.
Lois: Lois :: Lovekalalanekent on November 7th, 2008 06:15 pm (UTC)
I'm amazed at just how many places in the world were rooting for him. I never even realized that this had seemed to become a world event! :D And I love it.

And his speech made me cry, too. OMG, we need this man in the White House. Maybe I'll finally be proud to state that I'm an American again.
