Change has come to America

For not feeling that strongly as a person politically, I am very excited with the presidential election results and I'm looking forward to where this will take us. Being a member of the younger generation, I am impressed with the amount of support I've seen overall. One of my brother's friends rented a car and drove 16 hours from New York to Missouri so that he could vote today. That's dedication.

Looking at the results, I noticed that the District of Columbia voted 93% Obama vs 7% McCain (210,403 vs 14,821 votes). I think that's saying something.

This will be a remembered day in our country's history.

Alaska's politics on the other hand...that's a different story.

Nice appreciation.

Alaska solidified its reputation in this election as being one of the States that would rather not experience change in a number of areas and, in my personal opinion, Ms. Palin was a national embarrassment. It's nice to find a contrary view from the State.

Anyhow, what stunning photos you've taken!

Best wishes from Southern Japan.

You're absolutely right. This election result is a time in history, never to be forgotten. I honestly never thought that I would see the day that a Black American would be voted President. Maybe the people of this country has finally realized we are one regardless of the past. I'm looking foward to the next four years. I don't know what McCain was thinking when he chose Palin for a running mate. The only thing that makes sense to me, is that he wanted a woman (another minority) to make his campaign look unbiased. He might as well of picked Dan Quaile. I don't know if you remember him, but he is comprable to Palin. Aunt Colleen
