I'm drunk, completely wrung out, and so relieved that Barack Obama is the 44th president of these United States. It's not just historic, it restores my faith in the wisdom of the American people.
I hope we don't have to listen to Palin's airhead vulgarity for at least another four years. I imagine Medusa will rear her ugly head on the national scene before the next election. I feel bad for McCain, because I liked him. Palin brought him from being an American hero to her level, and destroyed his chances. His negative campaign hid the true McCain, the one whose concession speech was eloquent and felt true.
I look forward to Michelle Obama as the First Lady. She's brilliant, classy, hardworking, low-key.
Tonight I got to cry and drink and celebrate this victory with friends, but without my husband, a huge Obama supporter. We'll celebrate when you get home, Honey. You'll be touching down in a new America.
