I have election hangover. My friend from LA came over and we stayed up ALL NIGHT watching state after state roll over. It was thrilling, but even when Obama was up to 207 electoral votes I still couldn't bring myself to believe it. It was when the West Coast came in and the numbers rose like money pouring in on a charity auction that we shrieked with joy and hugged and jumped and finally got our faith back.
McCain's concession speech was incredibly gracious and honourable, and I felt a little sorry for him while he was blinking hard all through it. Not as sorry as I was happy though--because Obama came up a little later, and he was beautiful, and said such beautiful things...I was also on iChat with a friend in Singapore, and we pretty much wept all through the speech.
GOOD MORNING, AMERICA. WELCOME TO YOUR NEW WORLD.
*dances for joy*
