I woke up at 3.50am turned on the radio realised what was being said and had to come and turn on the TV,and burst into tears of joy

It is just unbelievable that a 39 black man has done it. Has become the 44th President of the United States of America. 306 electoral votes versus 145, with more to follow

Congratulations Bareck Obama

God Bless America, God Bless the world

it's truly a historic occasion, rightly akin to reaching the moon -giant leaps etc.

Yep!!! I'm with you in whooping it up. I hope this signals the kind of change that not only Americans want to see in the US but the the change that all of us want to see globally - the thing about us all being in this together. It's been an historic moment.
Yes, we can!

Thank goodness... Maybe now we can repair what was done wrong by our government in the past eight years. We now have a President who actually understands the value of humanity and community. He's one of us.

Hi, this is not about Obama but about YOU! Thanks so much for your help! I need someone who takes me by the hand! And no, I don`t think you are stalking me, haha, just carry on if you have good ideas! About the German - I once clicked on the translation button for one of Val`s posts, and you can`t belive how silly the translation was! I`d rather have English then.

I got up very early to follow the results as they came in on the blogs, and see what the commentary was. Be interesting to see what real changes this makes, won't it?
