Victory

For the first time in a long time, a candidate I supported has won. To be honest, though, I would have been pretty happy with either candidate, and I was pleased to see some of the 2000 era John McCain in his concession speech tonight. I am hopeful for a bright future in this country, I anticipate an increase in multilateralism and improvements in international relations, and I’m excited to look forward to what we might expect.

I’m proud to have voted for Obama today, but I’m even more proud that I voted and that voter turnout was so high. I don’t care who you voted for, I’m just proud that you voted. Thank you for exercising your responsibility as a citizen of the United States of America, and for contributing to our democracy.

It’s time for bed, but I have a feeling I’m going to have trouble getting to sleep tonight. What a monumental, historic, and exciting occasion 😀
