CHOOSE CAREFULLY

Best of luck in voting for the candidate you want to be President, American Sploofus members! I hope you select the best one as it will determine not only the destiny of the US but the rest of the world as well.

As a non-American, I am so very impressed by all the people who voted for Barrack Obama.
He came from behind - beat my favorite....Hillary Clinton....and has gone on to show to the
World....YOUR COUNTRY`S GREAT GENEROUS HEART.
This was one of THE most significant days in the history of the States.
It is Not just ``Business as usual`` ....not Republicans Versus Democrats
In his speech, Obama talked about a black lady who wrote to him. Her parents were SLAVES
....and he talked about the vast transition Americans have made over the last 106 years.
Tonight a black man was democratically voted in, as your next President.
You should be VERY PROUD of yourselves tonight....
The FIRST COUNTRY in the world to have a man of colour as your Commander-in-Chief.
Americans leading the way again....
I am very proud tonight to be your neighbour.

Glad to know there's such a beautiful heart just across the border.

Ya know Row, as I sip my champaign, I'm so HAPPY that you see it as well.

I honestly didn't believe in my lifetime I would EVER see an African-American elected, seriously ever. The racist blood still flows everywhere. It really lightens my heart to see that race didn't matter. People voted with their hearts and their heads, and IT DIDN'T MATTER. I'm SO happy my kids live in this generation...SO INCREDIBLY happy!!

Here's to hoping the world in our future is color blind, sex blind, sexual orientation blind, ok...just blind, period of everything that one has no control over. Here's hoping that we pay attention to way people say, not the way they look or sound.

Me.

I think this proves that racist blood DOESN"T run everywhere. You know, a lot of people didn't vote for Obama just because of the platform, not because they were racist. Some yes. But I believe the racists made up an insignificant number, as shown by the landslide and states that went to Obama.

It's time to let the racist thing go. What more does the US need to prove? The country has come full circle from slavery to head leadership - of the most powerful country on earth. That particular part of the change is an amazing and wonderful thing.

May there be a LOT of healing, finally, amongst the races here.

First of all, I am a devout Democrat. The one thing that is lost in all the conversation about this election day was how many good and qualified Republicans that either didn't get elected or re-elected because of the clown on Pennsylvania Avenue now.
As far as I'm concerned Bush and his wife should call Mayflower and move out now, dogs and all. George, when you leave, don't even say or wave good-bye, just leave. Mr. Barry New Guy, I hope you've taken notes with this jerk and remember "the whole world is watching" (a little verse from the 60's). For the last 21 months I have been watching (and listening) to you speak about a variety of subjects, then later tell the public they took your words "Out of context". As a former educator, I sincerly hope that you start making yourself a lot more clear. One last thing, I come from your adopted new home city, guilt by association really isn't a good thing. Take a 30 mile ride(from Hyde Park) to Stateville prison and see how many of our brothers are spending time there because of associations.

I am also thrilled that I lived long enough to see a black man elected President. We live in extraordinary times!! I do want to say, though, that John McCain gave the best, classiest concession speech I have ever heard. I have always been a Democrat, but I've always appreciated McCain's ability and willingness to "reach across the aisle". I think it would have been a different race if President Bush had not endorsed him. I also wish, if we had to have a Republican the last 8 years, it could have been McCain. Lesson learned: If the man who sicked the swiftboat guys on you in 2000 has a 72% disapproval rating, ask him to endorse your opponent.

As a McCain voter I can't really say that I'm happy with the turn out but I listened to Obama's acceptance speech and was very impressed. I was impressed with the statement he made about turning to McCain because of his experience and qualifications. Obama knows that he doesn't have much experience and I glad to see he is willing to turn to others for help. He does have an experienced VP as well so I'm sure that will help Obama in his administration. I also loved McCain's concession speech. He is a true patriot. He gave a very classy speech and gave Obama great respect which is what all Americans should whether we like the "clown" in the White House or not.

What is done is done. Think both sides might benefit. Dr. King's dream has been fulfilled. Obama has a Democratic Congress to work with now so if things don't work, it will be hard to shift the blame. Think one fact is obvious-others still m unclear-corporate America will get higher takes. Hope also the "whining" from some groups that they cannot receive a fair shake and achieve the American dream will cease.-not true any more. We all have the opportunity for the jobs that are available if we are willing to also have the American work etic which comes with the dream Linda

I think I'm done crying now. I'll just have to hold my breath, pray hard, and hope I don't have any cause to say, "I told you so."
