Hell Yes, We Did!

Wow, wow, wow.

I woke up this morning wondering if it was all a dream. Barack Obama is our next president, and hope is alive. My sister called me last night and said, "Our daughters can take turns being president, yours in 2052, mine in 2058!!" Thanks to President Obama, anything’s possible.

Today should have been declared a national holiday, because we know not much work is getting done. Here's some of what we're reading instead of working....

Relive the moment it was announced.

Charles Blow explains perhaps the main reason it’s such a big deal, and makes me cry.

Michele Obama says her first role will still be "mom-in-chief." She also says she hopes to focus on ways women can maintain a work-family balance – AMEN!

Colin Powell gets emotional reacting to Obama's victory.

Celebs react to Obama’s election.

Chris Rock explains where all the black people are at today.

Relive the magic, pictorally.

Even the Indian IT sector feels good about Obama.

News flash: Some Obama supporters smoke weed!

And hopefully the last word for awhile on Sarah Palin: the defeated Republican VP candidate wears Spanx.

We'd love to hear your reactions to this historic win, Devis!

I love that Powell video! When the former military commander of America gets emotional, you know it's a historic moment. I am so proud to be American today, and I think that's the first time I've said that in my 28 years on this planet.

I really can't work today! I give up! I told my son this morning he could be president, and he said "Can I go to school first?"

Also, I think I have Obama fever. I want to see him all the time now. Is it bad to be in love with the president?

Feelings of elation will soone give way to the cold reality that America faces. Two wars, depression, environmental disaster, and what are people celebrating about? I would not wish this upon my worst enemy
