Yay! You're all so terribly cute with your squee. :)

I would be so proud if my country elected a black President--I was proud enough when they elected Rudd and gave Howard the boot. ;)

I cried for joy! I can't believe he took Virginia and Florida.

It was very calm for me because we're at work here, so it's all very low-key:
Colleague 1: Did he win yet?
Colleague 2: Yeah.
Colleague 3: He was always going to.
*brief squabble about whether that was true*
*everyone returns to work*

But I loved watching everyone spaz out on my f'list. ;)

I have been on edge all day. I did let myself have a woo hoo! once I cast my ballot, but didn't let myself really go until now!

Time for the bubbly.

YAY! I am happy for the world too. And relieved.

Yeah, I think I'm more relieved than anything else (because obviously it's different at a distance). But happy too. Enjoy your festivities!

I think most of us over here were too terrified to be complacent. (The number one emailed article in the New York Times the past couple days was an article about the paranoia of Obama supporters who didn't want to predict a win lest they jinx him).
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Ameliebop_radar on November 5th, 2008 04:50 am (UTC)
Hee! Yeah, I can totally understand that. We were the same about Rudd. My whole adult life I've only known a right-wing government and I'd been through elections where I was *so sure* the left were going to swing it and then they didn't. So I definitely understand not counting your chickens... I was nervous for America purely on the basis of voting not being compulsory. That makes everything so hair-raising in my mind!

I am unbelievably happy right now! I have hope for the future of our country and for the future of the world, and I haven't had that in eight loooong years.

Those years WERE long. Very, very looooong. I can't wait until he's officially sworn in.

This is just amazing..I can't even put it into words. I think I cried for nearly 20 minutes before I could calm myself down!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Buffy Willow friends hugbop_radar on November 5th, 2008 04:58 am (UTC)
Oh WOW! That is hard to imagine. I was teary and excited when Rudd won our election but nothing to that degree--but then everything's bigger in America. ;)
is that how they do it in the pros?: *gen - life is goodantismiles on November 5th, 2008 06:30 am (UTC)
I'm crying right now, Bop. Crying. I never thought I'd see this day. I'm euphoric. I can't even begin to describe how it felt when I saw CNN declare Obama President-Elect. Oh my god.

It's funny. As soon as I got back home, polls closed in my state (California) and CNN instantly called the election. I was exuberant. :)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on November 5th, 2008 06:52 am (UTC)
Wow! It's pretty amazing to hear about the overwhelming emotion in the US. And how amazing that they called it as soon as your state closed! It all happened so (relatively) quickly once the polls closed! I'm just reading Obama's speech and confess to a little teary-ness myself.

Isn't it nice to see a party that moved further and further to the right lose?

No Palin in the White House. Whatever else happens over the next four years, Palin didn't get to the White House.
is that how they do it in the pros?: tv - bsg - dee the billy killerantismiles on November 5th, 2008 07:38 am (UTC)
Palin didn't get to the White House.

I am jubilant about this. It means the universe does have some love for the US. I would've thrown up if Palin had become VP. Now she can go back to her precious Alaska and never bother the continental US again. *nods*

I'm still giddy. He won...HE WON! I can finally acknowledge having a president again:)

Lovely icon! And yes, no shameful idiot of a prez no more! (Though I may faintly miss mocking him when he holds the US flag upside down at the Olympics and stuff like that. I cannot imagine Obama doing that!)
