i really don't know how i feel, so i'm going to try to express them in type. I feel this surge of optimism and hope for the future. I feel a celebration. I feel a concern for what's next. I feel somewhat afraid of these "tests" we've been warned of. But at the same time I feel so lucky to be part of history. To finally say, yes, we as Americans have grown so much as to elect a black man president of our country. It's phenomenal. You can't deny its profundity. I'm rambling now, but I just feel such amazing energy. After 8 years of Bush/Cheney my pride in this great country has never been greater.

I just zapped through all Sat channels I have, and from Chicago over Paris over London over Berlin over Russia over Kenya over Japan are going crazy, it's amazing. SkyNews, DW-TV, CNN, BBC World, EuroNews, AlJazeera, AlJazeera English, Russia Today, all German Chans, CCTV (Chinese), France 2 etc. etc. etc.
Even in the Middle East people are happy, I've never seen something like this!!
