Yes!

"Yes, we can!"
-Barack Obama in his acceptance speech

Amen to that. I am so proud of my country tonight.

OMG!! His acceptance speech was like him, humble and beautiful. And he stood out there after it was over and walked on that podium for a good while alone, being with the people. He is a phenomenal man. And I am so glad to be connected to this !!!

iii"The election of Mr. Obama amounted to a national catharsis — a repudiation of a historically unpopular Republican president and his economic and foreign policies, and an embrace of Mr. Obama’s call for a change in the direction and the tone of the country.

But it was just as much a strikingly symbolic moment in the evolution of the nation’s fraught racial history, a breakthrough that would have seemed unthinkable just two years ago." N,Y. Times front page 11/05/08
