I had never been so happy or excited to vote as I was yesterday. Truly, I cried like a blubbering idiot during both McCain's and Obama's speeches last night. It is such a great day in this country, and, while of course I was pleased my candidate of choice won, I was also pleased to hear McCain's speech -- gracious and geniuine. Truly a remarkable day all around.

(And as we say - now let's get to work.)

Even the air feels different. I walk down the street and people smile and say hello, strangers...we're talking rather than ignoring each other.

It feels like the inverse of 9/11, fear had been replaced by hope. It's been so long since I felt that something good could happen. So many years of horrible things happening in the world and our country at the root of so much of it. Now something truly amazing and good has happened.

We did this. Barrack in his speech gave all of us credit and then I really cried, because it's true. This is ours. After so many years of feeling disenfranchised, that there was nothing I could do, I'm engaged again. My heart is in it. Is it really possible that we've gotten our country back?

I'm so grateful to every single one who made a phone call, knocked on a door, sent a donation, stood in line to vote.

Yes we did.
