    My eyes are so red and puffy from happy tears I wont lie. I've been balling like a baby and i'm not even an American.

    This man has something about him, the way he talks it made me feel hope for a better world moving forward in a positive direction.

    His words are so moving.

    I'M SOOO FRIGGIN HAPPY!!!

    I wish we had someone like this man running our country is all I can say.

    I've heard people honking horns around my house. It's amazing how unified most of us feel right now. This is a victory not only for America but for the world.icon_biggrin.gif

    Hey! Maybe that's why Mr Harper insisted on our election FIRST this time, when usually it's AFTER the US one.. Imagine, if Barak had lost he could have been made a Canadian citizen and run in our election!!!

    It's a sad day for America.The guy who says he's going to bring change to washington is planning to keep so many who have been there for years with him in his administration.

    This is a great achievement for both Barack Obama and for America. It's a sign we may be growing up.

    Keep watching. BHO is likely to have one of the most impressive cabinets in 30 years or more.

    I too (for the first time ever) am totally jealous and am experiencing leader-envy icon_razz.gif

    I am inspired by both Obama himself and the amazing movement that has grown around this election both in the U.S and internationally - watching the reactions of different people around the world on the news through to sitting here at work in Sydney - our office erupted with cheers. Soon after, I received a flood of texts from friends and noticed a string of celebratory status updates posted in the last couple of hours by my friends on facebook (even amongst those random old high school friends who lean on the conservative side of the political spectrum). The response here in Australia is almost greater than that which followed our own election late last year...

    I can't imagine what the atmosphere must feel like in North America right now!

    Same here in holland! I was so incredibly happy for you guys, it was the middle of the night here and i had to get some sleep, but my friend stayed up to watch and texted me in the middle of the night.

    I experienced a millenium change, britney spears AND the first black president who has a fucking brain and is going to take care of your country!

    Congrats!

    I am very happy for you Americans on your choice of president... happy for the rest of the world too for that matter icon_biggrin.gif I really hope Obama'll have time enough to straighten out all the mess. So you'd better make sure in four years from now that he gets his second term.

    Our project leader who came from a slave family was also in tears! LOL

    And yeah, his election really did the US image a helluva lot of good. Just this morning I saw a guy drive past me in the market with a Yes We Can T-shirt. ROFL

    My Filipino partner was very happy. He said it was about time a minority got in. I believe people should get their job because of merit, but it is not good for a country when the same group of people are always chosen from. The last president has proven that.

    This is the first time in quite a while I cried for joy about a President being elected.

    My boyfriend and I were in shock and couldn't believe it when the results from the West Coast came in and the media announced Obama the winner.

    We started hear shouting from the streets, some fireworks, an impromptu parade, and honking car horns.

    After his speech, we went out and walked around the East Village. People were standing on top of anything the could climb and others were hanging out of their apartment windows shouting and celebrating. All of the taxis honked their horns. I can't count the number of times someone high-fived me as we walked to Union Square.

    People were dancing and celebrating and screaming in the park. It was a beautiful sight. I saw at least three U.S. flags being waved around by people in the crowd.

    This was an important election for many people in New York, especially my boyfriend and his family - immigrants to the U.S. He tried to take his mother and step-father to vote in the morning but the lines were too long. He went after work and then stopped by to see if his mother and step-father were able to vote.

    Today, I am truly proud to be a U.S. citizen!
