YES We Can and YES WE DID!!!

November 5, 2008

Barack Obama has won the election and is the President Elect of the USA.

Democrats have 56 seats in the Senate.

Missouri has a Democratic Governor.

I have never been so proud to be an American, so thrilled at the political process, so elated at the numbers of voters who turned out.  This election made history, not just because of the candidates, but because of voter turn out.  That is HUGE, folks.

While I’m not now, nor have I ever been, a fan of John McCain, his concession speech was one of the classiest speeches I’ve ever heard on a campaign trail.  I only wish those in the crowd had half as much class.  Regardless, I found his concessions speech to be moving and heartfelt and I’m going to post it here in case you missed it.

And our President, Barack Obama, gave a powerful speech himself.

Part 2

I write this and post these videos not to be smug, not to gloat in glory, but to document history in the making. I’m so proud to have been a part of it.
