I spent this night watching every damn station on TV, blogging with my people from NY Magazine Daily Intel, and emailing everyone I know. Barack Obama was just handed the President-Elect title, when fatty texts me with, “Yay! We win!” No doubt.
What an amazing thing to see some unlikely states like Ohio and Virginia (!) handed to the right man. What a relief that this country is trusting itself with someone who will not, as I explained it to Roan, be a World Bully anymore, and who will try to make things right.
I did hope. I did believe. I cannot wait to see what happens.
And in my neighborhood at least, people are screaming shouts of joy and triumph from their couches, fireworks (guns? naaaawww……) are being shot off and most notably, “Yaaa-hooooo’s!” echoing like crazy in the hallways of my apartment building. I don’t mind. This is one time I’d love for Roan to be woken up to find out what is happening in this world. I don’t believe I have ever been able to say that.
Obama/Biden 2008. Indeed. Can we just skip forward to January?
