Good morning. And, I mean that. It is a good morning.
I just watched the first half hour of the TODAY Show. It made me realize again just how emotional the election results are.
Our country finally has the leader we deserve. And, the reaction has been astounding.
Last night, as Rob mentioned, we went to the spontaneous rally down by the White House. I’ve lived in D.C. for fifteen years and have never seen this city show that level of excitement about anything. It was truly astounding. This city was rocking (and D.C. doesn’t rock) — the same thing was happening around the country.
Actually, it was happening around the world. One of my cousins in Ireland sent me this email: “everyone here is over the moon. you have never seen so such excitement here over an US election.” Even in the US, we have never seen so much excitement.
Still sorting through the Senate and House results. Many have yet to be called including the Senate races in Minnesota, Oregon and Alaska.
And, it was a bittersweet night in California: It looks like Proposition 8, which eliminates same-sex marriage, passed. More on that later, too.
We made history last night. Yes we did. After eight long years, we are part of the fabric of this country again.
Let’s start threading the news…there’s a lot to discuss
