What does Obama's victory mean to you? I just kept thinking of him today and the fact that he was sitting there in his office in Chicago, thinking of ways to HELP US! After 8 years of total neglect, it is so wonderful to have a President who actually cares about us!
What should we do next? I think we should wait and see what he asks us to do. I'll bet he's got all sorts of great plans for us. We chose him, now let's let him lead us on to a great future.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? What Mr. Obama's victory means to me, is that I can raise my son with hope and confidence that our world will become a better place. I can teach him that he can be anything he wants to be, even the President of United States regardless of race, color or creed.
What should we do next? Let's continue to work on erasing racism.....seems like we are not there yet. Let's keep our president safe. Thank you move on organization. Our family loves your efforts!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? The nightmare is over, finally. Who knew how long eight years could be? I made phone calls, attended house parties, gave more money than I ever have to any cause at any one time. I connected with voters in battleground states. One young man told me his father was voting for McCain; I told him that my first disagreement with my father was over the Vietnam War. He promised to call his friends, to make sure they voted. To our joy, it seems they did. I didn't think Obama could win, and I didn't think he could be as good as he seemed. But last night, he proved resoundingly that yes, he could; and his sober, compassionate speech suggests that, yes, he is. My hope is that he will restore sanity and humanity to our nation. My hope is for a return to constitutional governance. My hope is that our country will never again engage in sanctioned torture. My hope is for a turn away from cronyism and greed. My hope is for a world of leaders who know the primary schoolyard rule: talk, don't fight. My hope is for competence. My hope is that we can dare to hope again.
What should we do next? Breathe. And then work on improving Obama's (not-so-great) health care plan, stopping the war in Iraq, and getting rid of (or reforming) the No Child Left Untested Act.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? As an American Indian, for me, Obama's victory means that I can be proud of both countries I belong too! For my children it means that they, that everyone can aspire do great things and have the opportunity to succeed. In addition my son will forever have the memory of canvassing for Barack Obama, "My name is Rowan Lutz and I am a volunteer for Barack Obama..." He helped elect the 44th President and the first African American President. How cool is that!
What should we do next? This is just the question my 8 year old daughter asked, "So, mama, what will happen now?"
Cheryl H, Pompano Beach, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Our daughter was born on Valentine's Day 2008. President Obama will be her 1st REAL President. This election will give hope to her, that anything is possible in this Country.It will show her that you can do anything you put your mind to.
What should we do next? CHANGE IS HERE !!!!!!
Lisa G, Fredonia, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? My belief in American democracy has been restored after 8 years. America is real again. Americans DO have a choice! The outlook for the entire planet has just been turned around. And my 3-yr-old daughter will always know that this man was president of the United States, elected by the majority of people in the US.
What should we do next? Help him!

What should we do next? This is where the real work begins!!!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means that the paradigm has CHANGED!!! We made a difference, we decided our future, our voices were heard and OUR VOTES COUNTED. I'm so proud in so many levels: as an American - our country will be represented by an intelligent, charismatic, eloquent, profoundly exceptional leader. As an activist - our country has made a huge stride AWAY from the legacy of racism. As a mother - my children (2 & 4) will grow up knowing that their first president had their skin color and it did not stop him from becoming a world leader. As a believer - a powerful positive force has been released, energized and united . I AM SO PROUD AND THANKFUL!!!
What should we do next? We need to keep being involved in the process. As President Obama said it, the victory is ours.
Erik, Pittsburgh, PA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? For the first time in 8 years, I'm not apologetic for being an American. I'm proud!
What should we do next? We need to continue supporting President-elect Obama as he tackles problems that have no easy solution. We have to expect sacrifice and not instant answers. We have to hope for a better tomorrow and work toward it.
