Making History

This is the most hopeful I've felt in 8 years - just the fact that anyone else will be President is a good start, but that a smart, thoughtful, reasoned Democrat (who happens to be a black man) is about to win in a landslide, now that's what I'm talkin' about! I know I'm getting ahead just a bit, but if Dixville Notch is any indication, history will be made today.

Heard the election night preparations on the radio today. The McCain campaign has the upscale Biltmore Resort (chosen for its inaccessibility) planners worrying about having enough champagne, while Obama is having his party outdoors, in a park, setting up a gimongous screen so as many as can fit can be part of the celebration. There's the contrast right there.

I think maybe the Republican party has revealed itself to be its greedy, mean-spirited, closed-minded self and the citizens have finally had enough. God Bless America. I think we're getting our country back.
