Tonight


I am so proud of my country, so proud of my candidate, so proud of us for making him our candidate.

I was a very inspiring speech.. I want to have hope, truly I do. Somehow in the back of my mind I know the republicans are cooking up another hijack.

It's a proud moment in American history.

Dora - I think Obama's most effective as a candidate when he knows he has a hard fight ahead. And those were some fightin' words last night. but I know how you feel....

One good thing, though. McCain is a really sucky public speaker.

Miss J - Wasn't it? Whatever happens next, this made me very proud.

Sageweb - It was a complete home run. He knocked it right out of the stadium.

As you may know, in Australia's last election we finally got rid of a cynical, right-wing mean-spirited duplicitous buffoon as our prime minister (sound familiar?)(AND he used to follow Dubya round like a little puppy dog - it was truly revolting). It feels not unlike waking up from a bad dream. I have my fingers and toes crossed for all of you (and all of us, really..) that the Democrats win!!It's great that you have a candidate to get really excited about!

Granny - Me too. The last eight years have been shameful and shaming. As Barak said, "We are better than this." I hope he's right.

1000 shades - I did actually know that and it made me jealous, but also hopeful that it was part of a larger change in world politics.
