Standing in front of the jumbo tv in downtown West Palm Beach, it was as though the cool temperature suddenly rose a few degrees.  The blustery winds seemed to calm.  The collective pulse of the crowd steadied.  

Today was glorious.  There is a lot of journalistic junk food – dress reviews, celebrity spotings, dance moves – that you could get fat on, but let’s not.  Let’s hope that we remember the little things – for me, it was the smile on the young girl’s face as she sat on her father’s shoulders, and the little tap dance in my heart after President Obama said, “On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.”  I hope that everyone – regardless of color, political affiliation, religious belief, preference for automatic or stick shift – let today remind them of how lucky we are to be Americans.

Watch and read President Obama’s entire speech here.

Happy Monday.  I’m so excited about tomorrow’s festivities.  I’m hoping to steal away from the office to watch our 44th Presidential inauguration.  Anywho, with that on my mind…I’ve not much left for tonight’s post.  So, here are some pictures and a few words to get us by this Monday 🙂

We’re loving these glasses!  And the red wine goblets; and the white wine glasses…they make a Tuesday night feel more special 😉

What an energy that this day has!  Of course, everybody is talking about the election…the radio, the TV, even my phone has been busy with “Have you voted today?!” and “Go Vote” messages and texts.

Tonight’s results (and…let’s hope it is ‘tonight’) will mean one person’s dreams may come true, yet another’s may be crushed.  In any event, history will be made.  It’s quite a thing to be a part of; this election will be talked about, analyzed, compared to, measured against, etc….  For some, who they vote for is a private matter.  For me, here I am, with a forum (this blog) to express myself, so on this final day of the 2008 Election…here it goes…

I am female.  I support a woman’s right to choose; is a democracy not giving freedom to its citizens?  I am proud to be American.  I believe in evolution.  I want humans to be treated equally regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or religion.  I support separation of church and state.  I hope we, as a nation, regain focus on technology and science.  I am a Democrat.  And, I believe we don’t have to hold the same beliefs to respect, or even love, one another. 

We, as Americans, don’t need to separate ourselves for fear of being lost in the crowd, rather we need to unify to create a better crowd.

So, have you voted today?????  How were the lines out there???  Where will you be watching the poll updates??

It was quite an experience to be abroad while the US was trying to determine who the next Presidential candidates would be.  The Aussie interest in US politics is high, and they seem to know just as much (if not more) about our government as any American does.  

President Bush is not so popular in Australia, so it doesn’t come as a surprise to me when I read, “Australians have overwhelmingly declared their support for US presidential hopeful Barack Obama.”  Apparently, of those Australians polled, 76% are hoping for an Obama win!   

In fact, the poll reached out to people in 17 countries (UK, Brazil, Taiwan, Germany, etc…) and the sentiment was the same – get Obama in the White House.  Read the whole AAP article, Aussies want Obama as next US president

Looks like Gov. Palin has some more winking to do in order to help her party into the White House 😉

Speaking of Palin, I got this in a forward today and I thought it was funny enough to share.  *Click image to enlarge!
