Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have a President!
evariste is at an Obama victory party with his fellow pollworkers, and I'm excited and proud tonight. I am proud that no one can accuse America of racism; Americans had to defend themselves for a long time against accusations of racism from people in other countries who have no idea how Americans think or feel. Did race play a role in the results of this election? For me it did. I voted for Obama because I did want to see a black person in the White House. My thinking was, "so give him a chance". What can he screw up? The economy? The war in Iraq? Health care? So congratulations to our new president, and while none of us will stop scrutinizing his decisions and his progress, I do wish him luck and strength.
