Freakin' awesome! I'm Canadian, but I am VERY pleased with my US neighbours' choice.

What a night it was! Great pics!

Hi Rel,

It absolutely is. I applauded McCain's speech; it was done with honor, humbleness, dignity and respect. Good man.

Hey Dawn,

I am very pleased as well; our country is in dire need of good leadership!

Hello Miss Molly,

Wasn't it? Just amazing, everywhere. Truly incredible.
Wish the pics were mine, but they are not.

Hi Suburbia,

I was trying to encompass the myriad of emotions and thoughts that many of us felt.

So very thrilling!!

And won't it be fun to have little children in the White House again?

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Whoohoo indeed! But I don't envy him the tasks that lie ahead of him. As he said, it's a long and steep road.

Hey Leslie,

Isn't it fantastic? Sooooo good.

Dear Hearts,

Very thrilling.

And, it will be nice to have kids (and a puppy!) in the white house! It's been too long.

Oh Vanilla,

You are so right. It's going to be rough, but we can do it now. It will change.
Thank God, and thank Obama!!!

These photos of the reactions from around the world made me think of your beautiful choice of photos.

This is very cool! I can't wait for America to be a cooler place in people's international perception again, following Jan 20th!

I was in China in the week G Bush was sworn in and loads of people were gloomy about it! (And hey, I walked on the wall in reference to your Sevens answers)

Hi BS5,

Isn't it fantastic? We are so excited here... there is a new energy, a new hope blazing through the country and lifting everyone's spirits, and it's traveled around the world... so incredible.
Change is in the air, and it's almost tangible.

You walked on the wall? That's so cool!! Post about it, please, so that I can read over it. I'd love to hear all about it.
