Here's to a new day! Barack Obama will be the next President of the United Sates of America. Whether you voted for Obama or not you have to admit that it was an impressive night. People were more involved than ever before. Our generation is finally stepping up. Even though I seriously questioned why I needed to vote as I was waiting in line for an hour and half. Both Drew and I voted for different candidates, so my thought was, we both won't vote cause we would cancel each other out anyway. But instead we both voted for the sake of voting. Second, we have an African American president. As a country we have come so far. Lastly, I loved McCain's concession speech when he said" Whether they supported me or Senator Obama. I wish God Speed to the man who was my former opponent and will be my President, and I call on all Americans as I have often in my campaign to not despair in our present difficulties but to believe always in the promise and greatness of America."

This will be my one and only blog entry about politics. I'm so happy this race is finally over and that we can all move on. A huge congrats to California! Way to come together and get proposition 8 passed.

It is so crazy! Growing up i never thought there would be a president of color. i thought we would have a white woman before this. I fill so full of hope for taylah and my future kids. Times are changing and our generation does have a voice.
