I’m quite sure that I’ll never get used to that. However, it appears the people have spoken. They spoke in record numbers and that alone is a great thing. I know the expectations are high. I for one will say that he had better accomplish something for the American people within his first year. He promised it, he has a Democratic Congress and he has no excuses. Now we’ll just have to see how much those people that fill his deep pockets have control over him. That’ll be the deciding factor. He’ll either protect them or do what he promised he could do.
I did notice watching the election night coverage that many networks were calling states that were too close to say. I also saw that several states were called within 15 minutes of the polls being counted. I’m not quite sure how that works, but it happens. Election night is crazy!! We sat watching every minute of it and kiddo colored in her electoral college worksheet.
I must say that John McCain gave one of the best speeches I’ve heard. He was totally classy and true McCain right to the end. I have the utmost respect for him and the way he handled his campaign and even losing the election. He walked away a true gentleman of this country. On the other hand, I thought Barack Obama’s speech was just typical for him. He didn’t say anything new or refreshing. He didn’t say anything that would have made me wish that I’d voted for him. It wasn’t a bad speech, but it was just typical Obama. Michelle’s dress was horrid!! I definitely expected more from her in the fashion area. PHEW!!
So now, we’re on a new path in our government. All we can all do is wait to see what happens. It will require everyone to keep the hope and to pray. Somehow, this is God’s will and he has a plan. What it is, we’ll all find out soon enough!!
