AMERICA GETS IT RIGHT

LAST NIGHT the Untied States of America made me proud. Not only did we elect the right guy for the job,
we did it loud and clear, with a resounding and lopsided victory. It was an undeniable message sent to ourselves and to the world that we were sick and tired of electing people who looked the part, or used privilege to get the part and then delivered nothing but their selfish vision of the country and the world to the exclusion of both the country and the world. America took a huge step in growing up yesterday. And I am proud to have been able to witness it and be part of it. We elected a president whose motives are not to divide, but to bring people together. And this was not easy. This was not easy. This is a country that hasn't been whole since Monica Lewinsky, when we started to use politics to divide and to trash anything that could possibly be good. Karl Rove cynicism was buried last night, at least for now, and we have a chance for change. Last night this country put its baggage away and put its best foot forward. I am really proud of of America right now. We are on our way to somewhere better.

I guess I am also still in shock because this is a history making moment. I can't believe it and yet I'm overjoyed. I'm overwhelmed with so many emotions. I guess this is what happens when something really great happens.

I'm so overjoyed, myself, and happy and proud, even though I'm Canadian. But the fact is, America has a huge impact on the rest of the world, and now ALL of us are breathing with relief and hope.

It's overwhelming to think that somebody with actual morals and a conscience, and a vision has won such a huge victory in politics, of all things. The world has been so SICK for the past 8 years because of the criminal at the helm. The sense of possibility now is incredible.

I am so relieved that we did it!
I really can't think of a time where I've been so proud of this country.
There was a moment in Sept. 2001 when we were all hurting and the rest of the world supported us,
but this government ruined all of that and its been down hill since then. DK
