Yes We Did It Again!

I waited.  When the networks called Ohio, I waited.  There was no rush.  It's OK to wait a minute...or an hour and a half...to be as sure as we can be without every vote having been counted yet.

Patience pays off.

President Barack Obama has been re-elected.  With some votes still to be counted, including outstanding mail-in and provisional ballots, Mr Obama tallied 284 electoral votes last night and a slight majority of the popular vote.  Those numbers will change some as the last of the ballots are counted and the remaining electoral votes are awarded.

But the bottom line is that Barack Obama has been elected to a second term as president.

You know what?  I'm not going to apologize for this.  When he walked on stage to give his victory speech last night, with his beautiful wife and daughters, I got a chill.  Then I smiled.  Then I got choked up.

He did it.  I did it.  We did it.

Barack Obama is our president.

  1. Let's hope our government will try to come together now. I'm sure President Obama will try to get that to happen.
