Looks Like We Made It

It's Been A LONG time coming

but a change gone come. I told Smokie yesterday on her blog, my theme for this election was this Sam Cooke song. I told her I prefered the montage of Obama's road to victory with this song playing in the background FAR MORE than as the soundtrack of a gliding Spike Lee Malcom on his way to his assasination.

So now that we got the deep and reflective stuff out, this is in honor of Prince week over on eclectik-relaxation. And well what better song than this one!

Let's go crazy/Prince & The Revolution

I am really with out words. Our worlds have changed tonight! Our worlds have CHANGED!!!

Governor Patterson put it perfectly tonight when he said If Barack Obama wins we will see the President who's ancestors were the enslavers and enslaved.

Now, I don't think it gets any more American that. He summed it up perfectly for me.

Be EZ, like our president-elect

I was literally out of my last night with excitement & up until the wee hours of the morning because my heart was racing so.

The day after has an amazing glow this morning as the leaves fall in the sweet morning breeze & the change of season relects a change in MANY ways.

I watched McCain's speech as he conceded & was INSULTED that he thinks it was all about African American's supporting Obama because of his skin color.

Let me say that I saw ALL races everywhere "celebrating" with no weapon drawn on them to do so & I'm real sick and tired of the nasty assumptions that people foster due to race.

The last time I looked, MLK's birthday STILL is not recognized in Arizona (that's another subject for another day).

Obama,baby !!!!

I'm so amazed and impressed with his speech.

@SG- to be fair, to McCain I think when he was talking in those pronouns he meant more than blacks he meant the youth and the new registered voters.

To me if the McCain that gave the concession speech had been the McCain that ran for president Obama would NOT have had this landslide win. It was obvious McCain felt that way taking the onus of not winning. He was not TRUE to whom he was he let the Rovian machine run his campaign.

The problem is THIS IS A DIFFERENT AMERICA the America that bought into all that crap is gone. The America that thought voting was someone else’s job to vote or care is gone.

The WORLD is rejoicing which is so touchy to me on SO MANY different levels. The Obama story is one rich with subtext and victories on SO MANY fronts!!

@everyone- I love this BLUE state living.
The joy and happiness I have seen this morning the dancing in the streets last night (by all black, white, blue, and purple). The fact that NE no longer has one red member of congress 6 states the 6 states that started this country are OVERWHELMINGLY Democratic. It is so beautiful.

My friends in TX say the feel like a lynch mob is waiting to meet them after work for smiling to hard. I’m glad I could experience it. I will be blogging about it later once I can compose my thoughts.

Governor Patterson was right on point and that's what makes this occasion so monumental
