Yes, *we* can

I just heard two great speeches. I was getting a bit impatient for Obama's, but it was worth waiting for.

"I will listen to you, especially when we disagree."

I'm going to hold you to that, Mr. President.

Yes, I thought they were both very gracious speeches, and both very serious about the work we have to do to face the challenges before us.

I was going to post about how impressed I was with McCain's speech and how hopeful I am about Obama's speech. I do hope that he crosses party lines and DOES work together with McCain and other Republicans as he said he will. I also feel...proud? humbled?...something to be here at this time for this historic election. We were a part of the election that ushered in the first minority president ever in our country. That's pretty awesome.

That pic's not entirely accurate. Some of the previous presidents DIDN'T have white hair. ;)

They might've when they got old ;)



I didn't realize though that a couple of your previous presidents had a resemblance to Colonel Sanders! heh

My entire family (including relatives) was so proud of this historical moment. As a minority, I am definately proud too. This is the type of change we need, hopefully Obama will cross over party lines and listen to the people (that will be us). Listening is one of his best attributes according to those who had met with him. Hopefully, that will stay true.

And, yes, thank you for making this possible. I know it was a difficult decision.
