First off, Barack Obama has been elected president! I am truly happy for him, I think he is a really great guy, and I think his vice president, Joe Biden, was a great choice since he is an expert on foreign policy. To all you republicans out there, I really respected John McCain, but Sarah Palin? Even you know in the bottom of your conservative heart that being a soccer mom who can see Russia from her house is not qualified. The electoral college map was interesting. I predicted 48/50 states correctly. I only missed Missouri and North Carolina. Virginia was a close race, it was 50-50 for a little while, and Indiana was close too. Barack Obama is like the Jackie Robinson of politics. Jackie Robinson broke the racial barrier in baseball, and now, Obama has broke the racial barrier in politics. It was inspiring to watch some interviews with people who had marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, and how happy they were.
It’s finally here, it’s what we’ve all been waiting for (for the past four years)! Ever since the primaries started, I’ve been excited. I myself am a moderate-liberal, but I do like Barack Obama, and Joe Biden. John McCain is a great guy though, I just don’t like Sarah Palin very much. If McCain-Palin ends up getting elected, we’ll have some great SNL skits to come in the next four years; plus, perhaps some more prank calls from French-Canadian radio stations!
