We are having a spaghetti party in our house in honor of Barack Obama. I knew singing "Solid as BaRock" would help! We are some happy happy people, Mario and me. Mario wouldn't let me be excited until after John McCain gave his concession speech. A speech from the real john mcCain, not the McCain Campaign. It was the first time I felt like McCain was being honest and himself. So now I am allowed to be excited and am I ever!
Earlier today I was reading Sarah and the Goon Squad, and she said something that stuck with me,
"The truth is that for the first time since 1992 I am voting for a Presidential candidate instead of against one."
I feel like we have been voting for the lesser of two evils or voting to keep someone out of office. Today I voted for someone that gives me hope and makes me feel like our country will head in a good direction. I am very hopeful for our country. Today when I stood in line to vote I was excited, when I voted I was excited, and afterward I was beyond excited about what could be. I'm truly happy about our next president!
