And the World Shifted

It has never felt more thrilling than it has during the past week to be an enfranchised American.  Over the past year or so, I was surprised to find that I had gradually become an election junkie.  I can’t remember a time when I’ve read so many political articles and watched so much CNN…it’s the only American news channel we get.  My favorite political commentator though is Jon Stewart cause he’s so goddamn honest and funny!  It still feels a bit surreal that Obama has actually won the presidency.  I can’t believe that America has elected a guy named Barack Obama to be president…it’s amazing.  I honestly thought that I’d be an old woman when something like this would be possible. Can’t wait to see what he can do once he fully assumes the position.  He’s opened the door to so many opportunities already.  Perhaps in the future this will be our Prez and his Veep.
