CNN has projected a sure win for Obama. CNN is showing excited throngs in Chicago but out my window I hear people cheering in their apartments and my neighbor delivering a heated monologue on the topic.

It happened.

After so much disappointment it really happened. I'm going to go walk the dog and hear some more of that hooting and hollering up close.



  1. I agree with you...


    Thank goodness. Poor Mark fell asleep beforehand, and here I was with the animals on the sofa, listening to sounds of fireworks outside.

    I'm so relieved. Obama has so much to overcome in office. I feel for him.

    I will admit I was more than a little scared that it wouldn't turn out this way.

    But then I saw that Obama even took Iowa (91% white and notoriously republican) and saw it as a good sign.

    We are all ready for a new day, a new administration, and a new hope.

  3. Woke up this morning and was afraid it wouldn't be real. It is! It's real!

  4. I didn't understand how scared I was that he wouldn't win until he did and I started to cry.

    Kitty, Laurie, I'm so glad you ladies were up and trolling the internet during the hoopla, too!
