How nice it must be to live in a country where a really good candidate can win the elections... I wouldn´t know

Congratulations to the people from USA!

Bush and the Republicans can still be blamed for years to come.

And then you have people like Oprah- knowing that most of her stupid ass fans cant decide on their own who they want to vote for endorsing Obama.

She is filthy rich from living in a Capitalist society and yet she votes/endorses a man who is socialist.

F***ING STUPID.

LOL at people who actually think Obama is a socialist.


I was stretching the truth- ever heard of that?

Yes, my memory isn't so short that I don't remember Republicans constantly blaming everything that's gone wrong the past 8 years on Clinton.  Oh, and by the way.  This is what a real mandate looks like.  Of course just like Clinton they are already eager and will be working hard to undermine Obama's administration.

I had turned away from the election coverage and my wife woke me with the good news.  Amazing to see two pages had been added to this thread since my post this morning and all the sour grapes coming from some people.  You should be ashamed of yourselves. Angry

Congrats to Obama and all who voted for him from this side of the pond Clap. Well done to everybody.
 
I am delighted, and Obama will prove to be better than Dubya ( is it possible to be worse?) and better than our present incumbent at No.10.  Having said that, I'd rather have Brown than Cameron. 
 
It's just a shame it hasn't been Al Gore for the last 8 years, as it probably should have been.

Did anyone see that phenomenal blonde photographer who had been following Obama on his campaign? ABC spoke with her for a little bit and I swear I had a mini heart attack! I'm not an Obama supporter, but I's sure likes his photographer!!! Wink

While over 350 electoral votes is a landslide, 52% of the popular vote is much less so. Additionally, voters seem to have shied away from giving the Dems the 60 seats they so desperately wanted.
 
And the fact that all of these anti-gay and anti-affirmative action props passed so easily, even in California, shows that despite Obama's beautiful speeches we are still as bitterly divided as ever. :(

There are lots of veterans in my immediate and extended family including a permanently wounded step-son, a highly decorated brother-in-law general, who was promoted because of his daring recue attempts, and many, many others.

I'm sure they admire McCain, but the ones that will talk about it think that Bush and Rumsfield are total jackasses.

Speaking of which, I will begin taking bets on whether or not the U.S. will have completely pulled out of Iraq by this time next year.
On another side note, I will also be taking bets on possibilities of civil uprising and assassination attempts on President Obama in the next 4 years (don't laugh at the possibility of an assassination, since 1) there's plenty of skinheads out there who are even more pissed off than I am and 2) a U.S. president has been assassinated every 20 years for about the past 150 years or so, although Reagan and one other president who I can't remember right now managed to survive their assassination attempts). Not that I'm saying someone will try, but for some reason I see it being a possibility.




You were right about the riots after the election, we read your post and there was an immediate riot of laughter in our house.

I hope your assassination fantasies don't come true, it would be hard on his wife and daughters as well as the rest of the country.

I'd rather have stayed out of the discussion (even if, as a future US citizen and the soon-to-be wife of one, I feel entitled to participate), but I'd like to add my endorsement of  what John just wrote above me. I wonder if one can be so oblivious to the extremely difficult situation of their own country, and wish death on someone just because they don't share that person's ideas, regardless of the havoc such an event would wreak on the country (not to mention at the international level). Therefore, I can't help thinking such fantasies are a tad disturbing, to say the least. Has hatred for one's adversary become stronger than love for one's own country's welfare?Confused

John McCain proved today (or yesterday), when conceding victory to Barrack Obama to be a great man and a great US citizen; I believe he expects this kind of greatness regarding his supporters too.

I think the concession speech was the best thing to come from his campaign.

I didn't see it but I would venture a guess that you're right. The worst campaign ever

So true Guigo, John McCain is a class act all the way and would have been a great president 8 years ago. Most of my family are Republicans and I warned then 8 years ago that they were making a big mistake picking Bush over McCain. I don't bug them about it, but I'm sure they agree with me now.

We can just dream of people making concession speeches like McCain's here in Italy... Our dear PM Berlusconi Dead spent the past two years (before he got reelected last April) trying to prove that the Prodi government had stolen the election. What a difference, huh?
