Thank you, America, for...

  • voting in record numbers.
  • recognizing that your vote does make a difference.
  • showing us that red can indeed become blue.
  • understanding what "change" really means.
  • knowing when enough's enough.
  • lifting the veil of tyranny.
  • celebrating last night in the streets.
  • bringing out your best selves when you were baited to bring out your worst.
  • choosing someone unashamed to utter the word "peace" in public.
  • showing that Presidents need not only be named John, Bill, James, or George.
  • determining before bedtime who would be the next President of the United States.
  • electing Barack Obama!
From the bottom of my heart, America, thank you. Now help this list grow by adding to it in the comments, posting it to social networking sites, and circulating it via email.

This is indeed pretty darn awesome, although I thought you once told me that a Democratic vote cast for the presidency would never count for much in Indiana.

Congrats to everybody who voted in Bloomington.

Hi Liz,

Evidently, reports of Indiana's Republicanism were at least somewhat exaggerated. It was a remarkable feeling not only for IN to register this year in the media but ultimately to count in the general election!
