annamill BS: Yes, We Did!!!---OBAMA WINS (217* d) RE: BS: Yes, We Did!!!---OBAMA WINS 06 Nov 08

Hi Everyone; Congratulations to us! Let me start by saying that I feel this is one of the most memorable times in the history of our country. I feel the change from Bush is to be celebrated as well as the choice we have made for our leader.

Now, I can't help but wonder, reading these posts, if perhaps we are putting too much hope upon Barach's shoulders. He will be the President of these United States, but he is not all powerful. In their wisdom our forefathers put stops and guards in our government to be sure no one person could have his way but that all views and ideals would be included. This includes big business, oil companies, etc. as well as we small people that need to be watched and cared for.

One of my fears ( and I did have my fears ) while supporting Obama was his lack of experience in dealing with the "politicians" of the world. It worried me a bit.

Will he want to be accepted by his peers and perhaps listen to the wrong advice along the way? Make a bad choice for our country that is motivated by wanting to do what he feels is right? Will the rest of our government allow him to do the wonderful things he has promised? Especially the "Changes" he wants to make?

Well, here's hoping.

There is no doubt in my mind we did the right thing by bringing in Obama. I feel it would be certain that the "experience" held by McCain is not the type of experience we need right now.

I'm not sure where this quote comes from, maybe someone here will know.

"It has been said that, regarding the presidency, "the office makes the man. ...".

Our future president has a challenge ahead of him. I think he will be fine.

Love, Annamill
