I was glued to the television all night long, watching the political coverage and the speeches. I actually missed McCain’s speech because I’d been on delay and sped up when we were getting close to having Obama clinch.
Obama’s speech was amazing, actually better than expected. I loved his entrance with Michelle . . . her fabulous sleeveless dress, their fist bump, their obvious affection for each other.
I cried at the end . . . because I am a sap:
The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.
