It is so good to feel hopeful! It's my first election as a "real adult", two kids, a mortgage, not in school (ish), but the change in the attitude of the nation makes me all vaclempt! The joke I can't help but make is how he was careful to include all the world religions in his speech. He said "All Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Budists." I thought it would have been funny if he kept going "...Wiccans, Ba'hai, Unitarians, Naturalists, Atheists, etc."

Becca, as a life long atheist, I was thrilled to hear myself included as a 'non-believer'. :)

I'm behind Obama, and this is a first for me as well. I'm still mad at him about Warren, but I'm trying to forgive.

I was also 9 during Watergate, or maybe 8, and I remember feeling sorry for Nixon. I may have been the only person in the U.S. who did so. :) I just thought of how much it would SUCK to have so many people mad at me.

I gotta tell you after seeing everyone crying and so happy my first thought was, we better be careful placing him on a high pedestal. It could be a long way down...

Shoot, I'm so glad someone else thought that dress was hideous!!! Looked like those tissue paper things we used to do in grade-school with elmer's glue and the end of a pencil. And the color was ghastly. She shoulda gone for shiny magenta or deep plum with a halter top, but what do I know with my 11-year-old sweatshirts.


ps, my cousin's BIL is Rahm Emanuel's rabbi. How exciting is THAT??

What a relief! I thought I was the only one. I took an informal poll yesterday and NO ONE was willing to dis the dress! I was starting to get creeped out aver it, like maybe I wasn't allowed to have a dress opinion yet since we are still in the Obama love fest. But, you know, it's just a dress, not the lady herself (who I expect will turn out to be an interesting and intelligent force in her own right).

Way cool on the <6 degrees of separation to Rahm Emanuel.

I thought her dress just had a lot of kleenex pinned to it in case she cried. It seemed very functional.
