That's so great...congratulations. When you think that many of the older generation weren't even issued birth certificates, this is a truly monumental moment.

I have a lot of racist relatives who still say and believe horrible things about African Americans. My grandparents have always been critical of it.

He echoed a lot of important speeches tonight, there was really something for everyone in there. I liked the JFK - service bit myself.

I feel sorry for Mccain because from now on whenever he meets someone new I'm sure he's getting a "sorry about the elections" or some variation of it. Eek.

Thank you Chicago for not booing McCain. Granted, I'm sure there were some. And I know it is hard for your canidate to lose, but I thought the boo's at McCain's speech speak to the mirror I think the Republican party needs to look at... Terrible.

I thought Obama's speech was amazing. I think he downplayed himself enough to focus on what's ahead... I liked that it was somber and triumphant, and that he also reached out to those that supported McCain.

Well, they are in the next few days... Although it looked like most of them were Michelle's family, Maya and her family weren't there - I imagine she is taking care of the arrangements for their grandmother back in Hawaii.

As far as I'm concerned that was a pretty civil response.
