America has taken a very brave and overwhelmingly united step forward, and the world is very happy to celebrate your bravery.


Congratulations.
That's fine and all, and I'm curious to see how he handles foreign policy issues.

Yay for you. I'm sober, my head aches, my nose is running, and I'm alone.

There's a quality to this election that actually got people engaged...if that's a product of idealism, character, and actual ideas, I say bring it on. I'll order multiple shit-loads.

Does he face a massive challenge? Yes.

Is this a massive moment? Undeniable.

Obviously there is idealism and practicality but I've been rather shocked by the level of cynicism of so many leaning more to the right (especially in here), especially since the idea is that they have the monopoly on patriotism. There's a lot of love America in the "FYM room" right now, but somehow that doesn't count? That's not "real" patriotism? Celebrating the ideals America stands for is somehow now foolish naivete?

No worse than McCain and a lot better than Ms. I Can See Russia. It always helps when the rest of the world respects you.

There is a demonstration of young people taunting the White House right now. Apparently, university students are texting each other to go to the White House and cheer Obama's win.
