I cried a little during the speech. I had been skyping, and calling and texting and emailing various people in and around my little circle. My mom was giddy. My friends were too.
We popped some champagne that I had sitting around. It was pretty darn good.
I have reclaimed the respect that I lost for the American voter after the 2004 election.
This election was not about race. It was about hope vs fear, and hope won out.
An unquestionable mandate, and much work to do. May we be lucky and strong enough to work together again towards a better country.
I feel a lot of love tonight.
