re: Election Day Thread 2008

I gotta say...I am proud of our country. I def didn't vote for Obama but I am proud we elected a black man with a muslim sounding name. The shear step forward that shows from only a diversity standpoint is immense to me. Bravo to America. We don't suck quite as bad as some may have thought.

re: Election Day Thread 2008

I've been told I'm a pretty good public speaker but man what I wouldn't give to have the oratory skills of Obama and command the stage the way he does. I don't know that I've ever heard a better public speaker. It is just amazing

Just curious, any word from the Clintons tonight?

Dude is a baller. He's second fiddle only to Abraham Lincoln, Martin L. King, and John F. Kennedy.

The thing that I liked the most about the speech was when he said the words "I promise."

It's hard to not get swept up in every word he says.

re: Election Day Thread 2008

Clear lack of class, I would even go to say intellect, from the McCain-Palin supporters during McCain's speech. Really sad actually.

Well, I think there were a few early on who were vocal in their disappointment (to be expected), but under the guidance of McCain the jeers turned into cheers.

Bitterness is a bitch.

But who cares about the supporters. McCain was classy, and at the end of the day, that's what counts.

re: Election Day Thread 2008

Great night. Very impressive from President Elect Obama (wow). And very gracious from John McCain--nice to see the old John again. I think that was a better representation of the man then his campaign.

Very historic. Loved the part in Obama's speech about the 106 year old voter from Georgia. Amazing.

re: Election Day Thread 2008

The McCain supporters were a big reason I didn't switch my vote last minute. It seemed like too many of his rural supporters had no reasoning whatsoever to vote for him but were more adamant than anyone that I shouldn't vote for obama. Racial based ignorance was seeming to run rampant in culpeper. Bad day for the trailer parks across the nation.

Re: Election Day Thread 2008

One of the big stories of this election was the voter turnout, very good to see people getting out there and voting

The Associated Press: Voter turnout best in generations, maybe a century
