Presidential Election 2008

What a historical time!!

This is totally something that I’ll be reliving years from now when we tell our unborn child about this historical time. The 2008 presidential race is close and I am both pleased and excited to see how it is unfolding but this isn’t a post about who I voted to be president it is about how historical this time is.

The desire and hope for change has crossed party lines, racial lines, gender lines and has made me very proud to be an American. One way or the other this is a historical time, we’ll either have our first African American president or we’ll have our first female vice president come 2009. That is a very cool, very historical thing and we all got to take part in it!

I am also very proud that so many young Americans got involved in this election and made it out to vote. The numbers aren’t out yet but voter turn out was definitely up here in Indiana and also in Arizona. Plus, so many more people got involved and did much research on the candidates for this election. All this involvement, turn out and research is a great and it truly does make a difference in the direction of our country.

I also think this time is especially cool for those older Americans who were touched by slavery, our country has come so far with regards to this and to have lived through so much contrasting change must be truly magical for them.

The state of the economy and the relivant issues of the time have urged us all to take this election very seriously. We are all Americans and we all generally want the same basic things. We may have differing opionions about how to best obtain these things but generally we are all in need of the same things.

Regardless of who wins the election we are headed for a positive change, I mean anything is better than where we are right? Both candidates have plans for change and aim to pull us out of the economic mess we are in so I am stoked. I just can’t wait to be done with Bush already!

So what are your thoughts on this day following the election of 2008?

  1. I am a full on Obama supporter! I had tears in my eyes last night when Brian Williams called the winner! Not only cause its a time for change, but because I was hear to witness the 1st African American to become president! It was not only a victory for Obama, but a victory for the American People! I am so very proud of my country for getting past all the racial hatred and voting someone into office who can really help us! Its been a long 18 months, and now I cant wait till February to get the ball rolling!

  2. I am super pleased that Obama won and that it was called so soon. This is something well want to note in the pregnancy journal and tell our kids all about.

  3. Just think, by the time your bambino is old enough to vote having an African American won’t be something so momentous because it will be a given that any race, ethnicity, gender has a shot at the White House. How wonderful.
