End of the night...and I can't sleep...

...because I'm so excited! I actually went up to my roof after Barack's acceptance speech to let out a yell or two and just let it all in (being so close to D.C. and all) . I'm not even going to touch the cell phone picture to keep the rawness of it.



That being said, for all those who don't think so, I love and respect John McCain. In fact, he was a favorite of mine way back in 2000 for the GOP nomination. He has done great things for our country and it's a shame his party turned him into something he wasn't not too long ago (and his not-so-great running mate). I think we all saw the real John during his concession speech. He's more of a man than I can ever aspire to be! Here's to him continuing to serve our great country.

Now, as for Barack, I just hope everyone takes his speech to heart. Because even if you didn't vote for him, we all need to come together as a country. We have made history tonight America, and we need to chart a new course to get us out of the messes we are in.

I love my country!

PS. Peep my "I voted in Arlington" sticker in the picture above. :D

PS PS. Congrats again to Sen. Mark Warner as well! Wish I kept that invite to his HQ/party...but alas, mikey wanted a date and couldn't find one (at least locally). Haha

Love,
Michael

Wow, Dude can you believe it! I'm so proud of Obama. I have to admit at first I was very skeptical, because of his back ground, but still proud of him. I agree with you on Joh McCain, he really step down with class. I'm happy that for this one moment everyone is happy, now I hope it will last. We as americans need some thing believe in again. Anyway how are you mike PLS call me dude!!!

It was tense at first, but I felt positive that this would be the outcome. Wish I had stayed awake to hear the acceptance/concession speeches, but I am sure I can find them on the internet somewhere (youtube). God Bless the USA

You're right about McCain, last night's speech reminded me of how he used to be, before becoming such a politically divisive figure. I'm hopeful that he will return to his pre-campaign persona now that the election is over.
Also, WOOHOO!!!!!!!
