« Election Live Blog | Main | President-Elect Obama's Victory Speech Reaches Out to Gays »

04 November 2008



Happy is not the word, darn happy is more like it! All I can think about are my grandparents who were told they could not vote unless they paid a 'poll' tax and all those men and women who gave their lives for the right to vote. My tears of joy are for them and all people who have been marginalized by some when it comes to voting in a democracy.

I don't know what O will do in office, but, as a black man, and proud American, this is truly a special night.

And, thanks Mr Rod for your updates :-).


What an amazing day!


LOL I still don't believe it.




Congratulations America. I don't know where you are going, but you are on your way.

Fox news seemed so unusually quiet...



I have hoped and prayed that this day would come. This is the dawn of a new era in history.


I voted for the first time in my life today. I never felt the need or desire before now but i am glad i was part of history.


I waited one hour to vote and would have gladly gladly waited another hour. This was a great victory for everyonbe.

Congratulations and wishing you Americans the best. Baracak is the best man for the job, his colour makes him only more honourable.

not disappear.

I feel great.

This is the first time I voted and also volunteered for a campaign. It was wonderful to meet so many people and travel across the state. I am getting good and drunk right now ...


Even FLORIDA went for Barack. YES WE CAN PEOPLE

You know what is so special is the fact that those two little black girls will grow up in the White House.


''GWM'' you and every other gay conservative must be having a fit right now, poor deluded queens
