I am Twittering at the speed of light, so if you want to know my thoughts as the evening progresses, click here!
Barack Obama has been elected 44th President of the United States of America.
My heart is full to bursting. I can’t stop crying. Tell me how you feel!!!
edited at 8 a.m. — I just woke up with a smile. It wasn’t a dream. It’s REAL. Barack Obama is our next President. So many emotions are swirling through me — thinking of the friends I gained and lost in this crazy topsy turvy campaign. Thinking of those who fought and died so we could be here. Our ancestors, who may have never dreamed this would happen in our lifetimes.
And now we are standing on the sunny side, having just passed the crossroads of history.
This is the new first family. That is HUGE. OMG I can’t believe it.
I cannot WAIT to see Michelle’s inauguration dress, or to hear her first speech following this monumental occasion. (Hello, Oprah!)
I cannot WAIT to see Malia and Sacha grow up in the White House. With their new puppy (that I voted for).
I cannot wait for Obama to take his place in history, and to start serious work undoing the messes President Bush has made.
So happy. So proud. Yes we can? YES WE DID!!!
