of the United States of America. Yes we can. This is just a battle we've won but the war is far from over. What will you vow to do to help instead of hinder your country with close-mindeness views?

Pray for the soul of America as the country struggles to retain some semblance of democracy under a socialist regime.

McCain was very gracious is his speech this evening and attempted to unite everyone, even his own supporters, behind President-elect Obama. McCain said he will work with and support Obama as President because McCain always works in support of his country. McCain has always demostrated throughout his career and even this campaign that the interest of the country comes before that of the political party. As his slogan said, "Country First". We should all follow his example and give our full support to the new President so that we can together support the country we all love.

I watched some of the interviews last night from the common people at Grant Park. It was like watching the reaction to the OJ Simpson verdict.

"We won, we won. America has finally elected a black man."

God help us all

I did not vote for Obama (Libertarian Barr), but now that he is elected President, he IS my president.

I feel that to backbite hime would be the same thing that so many Americans did to our Vietnam vets when they came home from that horrible situation.

We are Americans, he is our President, we should stand behind him and remain the United States of America.

I agree Michelle. I don't think that by disagreeing with him I am "close minded" though... and I don't think it means I have to agree with every move he makes. After all, there are MANY who support the troops but not the President in the War... But I do and will pray that he makes the right choices for America and I will continue to be active in my local politics and hope that the changes he makes will help, and not harm, America. Only time will tell.

I do congratulate him on winning. It's too bad his grandmother didn't get to see his win. I am sad for him and his family for that.

No, that just makes us into little robots. We still have our own ideas. Adn we still have the right to write to our congressmen (and women) about things we need/want. This is our country- and these folks are here to supprt us. A fact that gets lost in the minds of our leaders sometimes!

That is the biggest problem I have with the electoral college thing. McCain would have lost either way. But in popular vote the difference was much closer 52% - 46%, Electoral votes it was almost 2 to 1 in Obama's favor.

Exactly!

I have a quote from Marguerite Young that I find more than appropriate when it comes to politics: "If you understand hallucination and illusion, you don't blindly follow any leader."

I don't agree with everything Obama said. However, I agreed with him more than I agreed with McCain, therefore, Obama was my candidate and I am glad he won.
