What an evening, as my 17 year old turned to me and remarked that she would be able to tell her grandchildren one day that she remembers when the first African American was elected president. Truly groundbreaking for so many reasons, Obama steps into the role that will test his strength, intelligence and character. I hope that he can live up to the aura of hope and change that has permeated his campaign, and that he is able to lead his country in a manner befitting its people.
As for McCain and Palin? I’m guessing most Americans don’t care to have a hockey mom backing up a president. I also suspect the moose in Alaska are hiding as we speak, because I ” betcha shes gonna be trigger happy as Hell, ” when she heads back up to the great white north with her tail between her knees. So much for lipsticked pitbulls. Lets hope we don’t see her back in 2012, so she can have another go around at setting back women 100 years.
