GUEST,Willie-O BS: Yes, We Did!!!---OBAMA WINS (217* d) RE: BS: Yes, We Did!!!---OBAMA WINS 05 Nov 08


A change is gonna come, indeed. That's about my favourite song in the world with Sam Cooke singing it, and I heard it this morning, linked forever in my mind now with the image we're seeing of Jesse Jackson, a flawed hero (aren't they all?) whom I have long admired; his campaigns of '84 and '88 showed that this day was within the realm of possibility.

I guess the shine will wear off and there are still plenty of problems in the world, but they can wait for tomorrow. I am just so thrilled that we can see a more hopeful vision of the world.

Honestly, I had given up on the promise of what the US was supposed to be about...here's hoping none of this is too good to be true.

Congratulations America, Obama, and all of you!

Bill
