You know I really thought I would gloat, and who knows I haven’t gone out into public yet. But as everything fell into place last night, I felt a sense of good will wash over me. Then came McCain’s speech which i found to be very classy (tacky audience aside). I saw some real pain in Palin’s face which I surprisingly found to be pretty sad.
Then Obama spoke. After this I was committed to do my own little part to begin the healing process in this country so that we can begin our work, together. Yes this means good humor and pride in my country and all that jazz. I will try not to allow myself to feel contempt for the electorate anymore, this means not even letting California’s prop 8 sour my mood, not on this day.
I have to believe we will get where we need to go. There will be many stumbles along the way. But if this man could win the highest office in this country, things can’t be all that bad:)
Yes We Can.
