I'm so impressed that you all made it to the end. Isn't this just the most exciting time?!

The size of that television is so un-American. I love it!

Viva Obama!

It's nice to see that the reaction was the same on many continents!

I love the melodic "he he he" right in the mic at the end.

I am still on cloud fuckin' nine.

I'm so glad that all you people who choose to not even live in the U.S. are so very happy about the election.

Of course! The fact that we aren't currently living in the US doesn't mean we don't care about the country.

I too was in Paris for the election. I went to a Canadian bar by St. Michel with some friends and stayed up all night. There were British, Australian, Canadian, French and of course, Americans in the bar and everyone went crazy in the final moments when CNN called the election.

It was a moment I'll never forget.

Everyone has a personal story or tale of that remarkable day. . . me, I was right across the street from the White House the entire time. But somehow whenever I hear or in this case see someone else's response to that moment, I get totally weepy.

Why aren't you posting? Did you feel like your work was done after Obama?
