I got quite emotional during his victory speech so I can't begin to imagine how all those who voted for him felt.Today is a good day.

A brave man with a mighty challenge in front of him.
A truly historic day!

carol - good! :)


justme - we did the same. It was a historic moment.


mouse - or should I say kimy? - I hope he has a bit of a rest now, although I guess excitement and adrenalin are quite good stimulants.


willow - he is such a brilliant speaker. After a mumbling duffer like Bush who can't even read his notes properly, Obama is an articulate highly intelligent man who really seems genuinely nice and kind.


anonymous - are you my Nantes-Brest canal expert? Welcome back if you are and hello anew if you are not.

Oh and just to be trivial but that bit about his daughters having earned the new puppy that will go with them to the White House...sob!

French Fancy said...

frankie - yes, the pup, aw. I bet they'll be a presidential aide just to use the poop scoop.

anonymous - hello, I do find anonymous posts very intriguing and wonder if it is anyone I know irl

The Dotterel - you said it!

I cried and cried!
Then I sang a song from the Wizard of Oz--"Ding dong, the witch is dead, the witch is dead. Ding dong, the wicked witch is dead."

You know what though, I was mighty proud of McCain. His concession speech with first rate. He's a good man, it's too bad he's in the wrong party.
