yes, we did!

(I stole the title of this blog entry from my sister, who texted the news overnight. Woo hoo!)

Waking up to the news of President-elect Barack Hussein Obama made my day! Here are a few things I am happy about and proud of this morning...

• America has elected its first black president

• We chose hope over fear

• No more Sarah Palin or Joe the Plumber (at least for a while, sigh)

• For the first time since I moved to the UK, I won't have to apologize for picking the losing team.

To mis-quote Michelle Obama, I feel proud of my country for the first time in a long time. Bravo, Barack!
