Election Aftermath

Just when I think life is back to normal and all is groovy again, well, the United States of America elects a new President, Barack Obama.  I couldn’t be more thrilled about this news, meaning I can’t seem to keep my eyes off of that man on CNN, the local news and all over the newspapers.  Normally after so much of looking at one single person in the media 24/7, I’m all:

Noooooo!  If I have to see that face or hear that person’s name one more time, I’m going to run screaming down the street like an absolute crazy person!

But not this time.  Not with Obama.  I’m so extremely curious as to how this man can continue to pull off the whole well-spoken, stern and put-together presence in front of the paparazzi-like media that I can’t seem to take my eyes off it all.  It’s like I’m just waiting to see just one small stumble or fissure in what seems to be such a perfect façade.  And I’m left wondering if Obama is the real deal that we’ve all been waiting for… ?  Let’s hope.

In the mean time, McCain stepped away graciously and wasted no time in doing so.  Now that’s class.  The USA couldn’t have found 2 more qualified candidates to apply for the job in leading our nation, and now I just pray that the best one will be filling those presidential shoes.  Not only are we ready for change, but we’re ready for a big clean-up of the big huge mess Bush is leaving in his wake.  Talk about a big job there.

Bring it on, Obama!  Things cannot get any worse, that’s all I know.  God help us all.

    I actually wish that we could go back to the old first & second place get the president and vice president job. Because I think Obama as president and McCain as veep would be a really excellent team – much more compelling than Biden.

    But I’m all mavericky that way. 😉

    @JeriM – Great idea! And I bet you can even see Russia from your house, eh? 😀

    Obama and McCain, maybe, but Biden I really do not like him. He is so combative. Maybe he will be hidden away like Cheney.
