I find myself overjoyed, and more optimistic about this country than I have felt for a long time !

Although I'm glad Obama got in I'm even more thrilled that McCain didn't. Is Cheney, Rove and those of their ilk licking their wounds?

Yes we Can now becomes Yes, we ALL WILL ... this wonderful man will need the help of all of us to clean up the mess left behind. So now is the time to really "think globally, act locally" all over our land.

Finally, America will become the great country it once was. But, we all have to join in and CLEAN UP THE MESS LEFT BY REPUBLICANS. It will take all of us to do this, as this country is in the worst shape it ever has.

Good Luck to us all. I had tears in my eye during his speach. I'm glad that I could be alive to see this.

So happy!!! I was crying last night. But, so were a lot of people. Makes you proud doesn't it? And finally, finally, after two botched elections we have a great outcome. My state is republican mostly. I am not from here and have more modern liberal views. As we were standing in line to vote, I could feel the "good ole boy" blood, raging behind us. To some, it is all about the babies, which makes no sense to me. But, another day, another story. I am so relieved. And to see all positive comments here, makes me want to hug you all.

Well stated LadyGayle. At this point it doesn't matter if we are Republican or Democrates, black, white, or shades of neon green, we are all Americans and we need to appreciate that we changed the hands of power in a peaceful way. Sure harsh words were spoken at times but there were no guns or tanks in the streets. We need to be proud of this and always protect that which is so wonderful about this Country...our freedom. So to those who didn't vote for Obama come sit on the wagon with the rest of your fellow American citizens...McCain made that clear...and I appreciate his speech and his Honorable backing of Obama and that he didn't drag this out in some after election fight...he is to be commended that way. I thought Obama made a wonderful speech...moved me greatly...he looked and acted so Presidential and I'm sure that was noted all around the world. We party today and then we all need to roll up our sleeves no matter from what background we are and support the needed actions to get this Country back on track. Our light may have dimmed but it never went out...our Beacon to the rest of the world is burning bright again...lets work to keep it that way.

This is a NEW AMERICA. Thank you to the youth voters who turned out and had their voice counted. This is the dream that Martin Luther King spoke of. We are all one family of Americans. We are the Crayola Crayon box with all the different vibrant colors that are used to create a beautiful picture. Our standing in the world and reputation will now be one of integrity and diplomacy rather than an elitist arrogant country. We must let go of the past and begin anew. May God Bless all Americans and Barack Obama.

Thanks to all those people from other countries who congratulate Senator Obama, President elect who will take office in Jan.2009 and the people here. You all deserve a word of praise for showing us in the US that you are with us in spirit.

I am ecstatic! It is truly thrilling to read these comments and share in the joy and enthusiasm expressed here. And, as many of you have noted, we must continue in the work. It will take all of us to bring about the change. President Obama, I like the sound of that, has lead the way but can not do it alone. Pick something that you are passionate about, commit to the change.

Obama offers hope, inspiration, positive change, talent, intelligence, civility, compassion and excellent leadership to a country and world left hopeless and depleted from the ruthlessness, corruption and cruelty of sociopathic leaders.

Kate is right: there is much work ahead for us all. We must stay engaged in the process to rebuild America into a far better nation than we've been left with. I will repeat Kate's call to action as it is critical. Never think your vote or voice doesn't matter. That is what the corrupt and sociopaths in society would have you believe.

Please join and share your idea(s) and plan(s). Connect with other people and help make America and the world a better place for all of us.

Whether you live in the US or not, you can help!
