Is it over?

Nope. It is just beginning.

Tonight, I realized for the first time in my life, we will have a President who I actually like and even, admire. A man living the American dream who will be an example for my own little smorgasbord of DNA that is currently running around upstairs. That is a damned good feeling, folks.

Another damned good feeling is the overwhelming sense of relief I now feel. I did not realize how scared I had been for the past 7 years. How the pit of doom in my stomach was dragging me down. BeelzeBush was ignorant, dangerous and had no clue how to deal with the Muslim world. I am so relieved that we will now have someone who respects Muslims and understands them.

I guess that is all I have to say about that. I am proud to be an American and I am relieved that Obama will be leading us.

Didn't you get that totally true e-mail? He is Muslin! OMG!

Seriously, at least it's a clean slate. Maybe some of the tension will die down in the next few months and we'll all be calmer. This country needs to be calmer in general.

As someone who had no say in the election, but has the potential to be affected by the policies of the new president, I say a very loud "thankyou"!! I, too, didn't realise how fearful I was of the outcome until I felt the weight lift off of me when I heard the result. Here in Australia, we celebrated. A friend even interrupted her health kick to have a glass of champagne!!

Same here. I feel so relieved to have this election over. I've slept better the last couple of nights than I have for a long time.

Big sigh of relief here!
