Tuesday America decided a new president AND a different direction. Right... that's for another thread though. As a Canadian I am unsure of how to think about the reactions that are going on here at ATS. With the massive amounts of votes needed to raise oneself to the presidency, there had to be people that voted, strictly by party but THOSE that voted both for Bush AND Obama. Logic dictates that.
This happened in 2004, 2000, 1996, 1992, 1988, 1884, 1980, 1976............
Of course it's going to be emotional, politics just is. What's with the neigh saying Obama is not good before the man takes office? The same as 2000? 1992? 1980?.....
To me America made it's decision again. Why the griping? We've got people here that voted for Carter, then Reagan. Reagan and then Clinton.....
What I'm not getting is that you guys are ALL Americans. The pendulem swings but the devisiveness remains even though there is no choice but to accept this until the next election day.

And lets face it: If McCain had won. The exact same threads would be happening - only they would be about McCain, not Obama.

We're all Americans, so as long as the country succeeds, I'm happy.
