Ah, Obama is the President Elect. I have been waiting to say that for almost four years. I was skeptical that the people of this country would elect and African-American as the President, and oh so happy they did. Virginia's election outcomes could not have made me happier. It was clear for a long time that Mark Warner would win the Senate race. But, Thelma Drake lost her bid for the House of Representatives to Glen Nye, that was a pleasant shocker! They weren't in my district, but Thelma Drake has been one of those painful embarassments to Virginia.
So, as I awoke today, I double checked the results (I was still a little worried). Last night, I actually cried with tears of overwhelming joy of the Presidential outcome. I was impressed with McCain's eloquent speech and thrilled with Obama's victory speech (well, most of it, I fell asleep before the end). Yeah Democrats! Yeah America!
