“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.
“It’s the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different; that their voice could be that difference.
“It’s the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled – Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America.

Fine for you. It will probably be off to the re-education camps for me.
For the first time ever since I voted when I was 18, my man finally became President. Hopefully he will deliver what he is promising.
I am so thrilled right now, and still walking on air hours after he was declared the winner. This is a wonderful thing, for so very many reasons, and I couldn’t be happier!
“Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow.
Don’t stop — it’ll soon be here.
It’ll be better than before.
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone….”
