Dawn

Yes we f***ing did! And I only voted and contributed a bit of money. I know there are those of you reading this who can feel even more ownership in this.

I had a bit of a hard time getting into it today. I was hearing skepticism from many angles, and it was hard to tune that out.

But my country just put an intelligent, eloquent, liberal black guy in the White House. And even Rev. Wright has to sing "God Bless America" tonight.

My friend marshalaw had a saying that she quoted roughly 97 times this year before the Unfortunate Collapse: "When the Cubs win, anything is possible."

I'm not sure about that, but I think we all know something else, and I'm certain she'll agree with the paraphrase: "When Barack Obama wins, anything is possible."

Morning's coming, America. Get ready to wake up.

Of the few of you who might read this post, most of you know of this already. But today, I just have to post a little snatch of dialogue penned by our buddy bdar. I'm not sure when it was authored, but I first read it...what? Has to be at least 3 years before this day. Anyway:

"This is a hopeful America. This America will want to be right, it will want to be just, and it will want to be better than itself."

Hallelujah.
