Well, the election is over … and, as many will tell you, it’s quite a relief.
While, in general, I agree with this sentiment … however, without a doubt, this has been the most interesting & engaging campaign & election in recent memory. The number of people who went out and actually voted is a testament to this.
Even the primaries were interesting … in my entire life, I cannot remember a primary where my vote actually made a difference. This time everyone’s vote made a difference … down to the last state.
As most who read this blog know, I have been an Obama supporter for quite a while … but I have to say, the caliber of the Barack’s campaign was quite nice … he definitely took the high road and resisted the temptation to spread lies & rumors. McCain’s campaign, not so much.
To my mind, this election should demonstrate to the world what our country is all about … we can put aside prejiduces, petty differences, and elect the person best suited for the job at hand … regardless if they are black, white, man, woman, etc.
I am definetely looking forward to the next four (or eight) years.
