  • HELL NO
  • Not at all.. But I wouldnt be any happier with McCain either.. We are all doomed.
  • No. I'm not.
  • disgusted.. everyone is brainwashed
  • This is the greatest election of my lifetime. I was afraid the Bush-Cheney-McCain cabal was going to run our nation all the way to oblivion. President Obama will have his hands full fixing the serious damage inflicted by 8 years of the Evil One, George "Weasel" Bush. I have to say that John McCain has just given the best concession speech I have ever heard, with honesty and feeling. It brought tears to my eyes (well, just my left eye), and it raised him up a little in my esteem. Maybe he has a good side after all.
  • no. I hate the choice that America made. It was a horrible choice. America is skrewed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I'm always happy. It's a decision I make. : ) I strongly suspect that Obama is no more going to be able to fulfill the expectations of those who elected him than would any other candidate.
  • *****Happy Dance****** WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • America will regret this choice!!!!
  • Hells Yeah!!
  • no way! i'm terrified.
  • Not by any stretch of the imagination. PLEASE GAWD tell me this is all just some horrible nightmare I'll wake up from screaming?
  • No, I am not happy!! I am afraid of what he is going to do to our country. Taxes will skyrocket, many folks will be losing their jobs when company's move because of higher taxes. I hope he doesn't surrender in Iraq, and all the service people that we lost, will have died in vain! Vietnam ring a bell? I really believe the younger people have no idea of what a Great Nation this used to be. I hope he does not meet with all of these leaders of nations that hate us, without pre-conditions! I honestly hope and pray that you do not regret your vote in a year or two. I will support him, because I have respect for the office of the President. When he screws up, I will jump all over him, just like everyone jumped all over President Bush. History will report that Bush was one of the Greatest Presidents of our time. I am just sorry that I will not be around to see it, and probably many others will not be here either. But, I will be watching!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
  • Yes. Now lets get on with our lives and try to get us out of Iraq and fix the economy. Celebrate for a day and get back to work fellow dems. Now we can focus on pushing things through congress.
  • WHY IS IT SUCH A BAD CHOICE THAT AMERICA CHOSE OBAMA???? CAN SOMEONE PLEASE PROVIDE A LOGICAL UN-BIASED ANSWER?????
  • extremely :]
  • YES!!!
  • Eh. No. But we have him. Nothing is going to change that. Goodbye progress we made against Roe v. Wade. 50 million people missing from this earth since 1973 and counting. All abortion starts over again tonight.
  • ECSTATIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YEAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IVE BEEN PARTYING ALL NIGHT LONG IN DC. THE CROWDS WENT WILD!!!!!!! CARS HONKING IN APPROVAL ALL OVER THE CITY, PEOPLE DANCING IN THE STREETS, STRANGERS HUGGING ONE ANOTHER, SMILES EVERYWHERE, LAUGHING, SCREAMS OF JOY!! this was such a historic election. i was SO happy to have been able to celebrate this monumental occasion with my fellow americans in the nations capital. the excitement for the future was palpable amongst the crowds of people spilling into the streets. i cant wait to see what the democrats do next. CHANGE IS COMING!!!!!!! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Not particularly, but I'm hopeful that he will be a good president.
  • My friends: Nov. 4th: I worked at my usual job, actually my only job, poll worker in a Florida polling place at which four precincts vote. We have about fifty poll workers in the four precincts and I think that there are about 5000 registered voters. We had early voting this year and about 30% of Florida's voters took the opportunity to vote early, so we expected that of the possible 70% (3500) left to vote in our four precincts about half would show up (1750). We thought that the crowds would be dissipated by the early voting. -- Not quite. -- I arrived at 5:30 AM to set up for a 7:00 AM opening of the polls. There was a line of about 50 people already at the door. We opened at 7:00 AM and by nine had already had about 400 voters. I noted that the majority of voters seemed to be Republicans--something that I had noted on other election days, as three of our precincts are in high end neighborhoods. By 10:30 the voting had slowed to a steady string of voters which never really ended until about six PM. Then we had a few more until we closed at 7:00PM. No fights, the oldest voter was 91 years old, we have several first time voters, but not an overwhelming number. Final tally for the four precincts: McCain 927 -- Obama 749. I went home a little nervous--but I understood about the demographics of our precincts. Still, when I got home, and turned on MSNBC and saw the McCain speech followed a little later by Obama's I was thrilled, just as I was thrilled when I watched a man land on the moon, and when I heard Martin Luther King speak at Riverside Church one day with Bob Hood. If only Bob had been alive to see this day. What a day this has been. McCain's speech was no less than I expected from him. In fact, I would have liked to have Obama speak a little more than he did about McCain. And yet, not to take anything away from Obama--this has been his day, and he won for every person who has been seriously in the civil rights movement, especially for Bob.
  • I am neutral.
  • You betcha.
  • I am not panicking, if that's what you mean.
  • Happy as a clam man. Now we can have Sarah Palin back as gov haha.
  • I'm relieved. Being non American, this still affects me.
  • I've been telling my friends, THE KING IS DEAD! LONG LIVE THE PRESIDENT! It's a takeoff on the traditional, "Le roi est mort, vive le roi!"
  • Yes I am! Edit: And to the downrater, my answer is correct. I am happy about it.
  • Hell yeah!!! In yo face McCain!
  • Here in Australia, there has been a collective sigh of relief, and I would guess that most of the world will be feeling the same way... For me personally the scariest thing if the Republicans won this election was having Palin, a heart attack away (and McCain has had his fair share already) from being in control of the most powerful country. That my friends is my fear, as well as for many others concerned. With Obama/Biden/Democrats to be in power soon I believe that, while it will be a challengin next fours years, it can only get better for Americans as well as for the whole world.
  • Better than happy I'm excited for America, ALL of America. We have a real opportunity to make a change.
  • Many feelings. Most of them negative. My how fast the negative ratings accumulate. I don't care. I stand by my answer.
  • anger,sadness,depression we are all screwed
  • I'll just let that bandwagon pass me by and get back to life without campaigns.
  • Lot's of feelings..most point to..what the hell did folks do to themselves???? lol
  • *Naked running around screaming "GO OBAMA"!!!!!!!*
  • I take the 5th
  • CHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEE
  • Where can I buy blinders so I don't have to look at all the naked loonies going around screaming "GO OBAMA!!!!" ?
  • Hip Hip...Hooray!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Postive feelings! Although we may of been better of economically with McCain/Palin, getting rid of the deficit would of came sooner or later. It was just a matter of time. As for Obama, he stands for equal rights and opportunities for everyone. Can you say the same for McCain? He is as old as a prune, and if McCain died during presidency, Palin would take over as president. It is that thought that most Americans are afraid of. No way would I EVER want her as our President, much less VP.
  • Yep... I hope he does a good job *.*
  • ***YAY***Here's to HOPE!!***YAY***
  • I am humbled and grateful. I think he will be a great president. God help him if he screws us.
  • This is a historic moment. If I weren't experiencing so much energy right now, I might take the time to write out a thoughtful answer. However, I can barely sit still long enough at my computer to switch iTunes from "We are the Champions" to "Eye of the Tiger". That's how freakin' pumped I am. For the first time, I am truly thankful and proud to be an American. As cliche as it is, I really, really, really have hope. It's a beautiful thing. It's absolutely beautiful.
  • no. i dont belive in what he belives in. like gun control. some one pop up in yo crib with a loaded gun you ant going to sit there until they kill yo nah you going pull out a pistol and hope those taget lessons paid off.
  • Yes very happy... I'm from the UK and i think its brilliant:)
  • Am very happy and i feel like he is the president of the whole world though he will thing about Africa for some minutes
  • Alot of feelings, but none are good. I am trying to think positive and I will have to give him credit he is a smooth talker. I thought his acceptance speech was very good, and of coarse I am one of those people that didn't vote for him but now we will see what happens.
  • At LAST! America got it right!....
  • Well, I didn't vote for him. So, to be honest, I'm worried. However, I am happy that our country has finally gotten past racism enough that we have our first black president. Now, I sincerely hope some idiot doesn't try to shoot him.
  • Palin 2012
  • Though I am trying my best to think positively and give him a chance to make things better...I can't seem to shake this feeling of impending doom. I just don't think he is anywhere near ready for a leadership position of this magnitude....especially with the U.S. being in the mess it's in now. I pray that he proves me wrong...I have never wanted to be wrong so badly.
  • As an African, I must say that I am completely gobsmacked. I think Americans do not always realise how despised they are outside America - many international travelers from the US are surprised by the strong anti-American sentiments that they encounter all over the globe. Some of these attitudes are rooted in stereotypes, but unfortunately many are legitimate responses to American foreign policy and, to be frank, to George Bush, who seemed to most of us like some awful mutant Forrest Gump leading America and eventually all of us to destruction. I never for a moment entertained the possibility that Americans would really vote for a black person, or that they would vote for quite a radical reformist at the inception of an economic crisis. I had tears in my eyes when I read his acceptance speech. I have always had ambivalent feelings about America and was ready simply to give up on America and everything it has always purported to stand for after yet another Republican victory. But now I have to reappraise my opinions, and I promise you that the same is true for all rational, altruistic people across the world. America now joins the international community as a respected partner rather than as a despised bully that we are compelled to put up with if we don't want to be invaded, and the American people - as a concept, not as a individuals - are redeemed. Thank you to everyone who voted for Obama. You used your American citizenship to make the cross where we all prayed you would.
  • Yes I know and by a landslide victory. I am happy for President elect Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden and their families and the people who supported and stood by them through thick and thin for the past 21 months. They have a great team and an excellent campaign theme and they deserved to win. America has voted to give change a chance and I salute America for reaching the pinnacle of political maturity.
  • R-E-L-I-E-F ! ! !
  • wooooo
  • were f'ed in the A
  • -_- yey now a lot of babys are going to die wonderful now we have a madman in power well this is going to be inturnesting >_>
  • he has a lot to live up too, but at least he's better than bush
  • Boosh? Yeah, boosh. I'm going to go to my parents' house and gloat.
  • yeaaaaaaa, we won!
  • Great. Now lets move on and do something.
  • I voted for him, but thought McCain would win. All the people in my area are farmers and they all had his sign in their yard. I hate Bush and all his group has done, and I thought they were to powerfully engrained into America, in all their corruptness. I couldn't stand to watch last night. I woke up this morning, and my best friend texted me 'Obama bitches!!!' I am very very optmistic that this country is now moving in the right direction. It will take a long time, but we will return to the good days I remember when Bill Clinton was in office. The little people of the world still count!
  • Fasten your seatbelts. We're in for a rough ride
  • Very!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Not great. But, I must admit I am very happy for the African Americans. We all have struggles, but they have truly come along way come from a lot. All we can do now is pray for him & this nation.
  • To God be the glory! More people exercised their right to vote. More importantly, Sarah Palin can go back to Alaska, keep her mouth shut and stay there.
  • I don't believe much will change. He'll find that it's all going to be an uphill battle. I believe he'll have just as much of a hard time to change things as McCain would've had if he had won. Money buys influence, and influence shapes policies. Most Americans don't have either.
  • Worried.That's all I can say.
  • I voted for Obama ! WOOT WOOT !...Im hopin for the best for him cuz many people are against the color of his skin ! I voted for him cuz its time for somethin different and somethin new. Now all we gotta do is sit back and wait for some CHANGE and hope for the best for us and hope everything willl get better....
  • Hoping he does bring us CHANGE and get us out of the hell hole that mother-effer BUSH-itter got us into !!!
  • Good , hope everything will change for better!
  • I feel the need to start hording my money in paper sacks and keep it stashed under my mattress so the government won't be able to redistribute it.
  • Yes, I'm kind of hungry.
  • Yeah, I feel very uneasy about it..
  • I feel the entire nation has been plunged a horrific display of racism. You can’t turn around without running into another news story about how “the United States has elected its first African-American President.” Unless you’re a racist, who cares what color his skin is or where some of his ancestors are from?
  • God help us all pretty much covers it for me
  • excited and waiting for a new day.
