What does Obama's victory mean to you? America can rebuild after 8 years of extremely costly mistakes.
What should we do next? Strong Cabinet, with the best experts, from both parties. Clean up the mess, and return Clinton's Surplus.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? A renewed faith in this country, and in the human race!
What should we do next? Take up the task of restoring our environment, breaking down the walls of bipartisanism, bringing this country into a new enlightened era.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Words cannot fully express the joy and excitement I feel inside. When it was announced that Barack Obama has been elected President of the United States of America, I immediately called my parents. My father is 76 years old and my mother is 70 years old. I have never seen or heard them cry before, until this night. My parents reflected on the segregation and prejudices they endured in their youth and they never thought that a African American would ever be elected President. I am hopeful and encouraged that our Country will be unified; the economy will improve and the environment will be saved. GREAT JOB PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA!
What should we do next? We should all continue to support our President Elect, Barack Obama and the staff that he chooses. He has a long road a head of him and 8 years of turmoil in the White House, will not be resolved quickly. We all need to continue to be optimistic and patient!
Nanette M, Boise, ID
What does Obama's victory mean to you? My 80 year old grandmother registered to vote for the first time ever & several of my "republican" friends voted for Obama. For the first time since 2000, i am PROUD to be an American!!
What should we do next? Start bringing our troops home to their families.
Josie P, Salem, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Feels as if a weight is lifted off the country and the world.A new era is being ushered in.''Hope is not what you expect,it is what you would never dream''....I like that one. I suppose a many ''dreams'' are coming true as of election night?
What should we do next? Keep up the enthusiasm and support that has been going on. Let all the skeptics and McCain supporters know that the exact right choice was made.PEACE.
Linda R, Fairfield, CT
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am thrilled and relieved beyond words! I am also so inspired by Barack Obama's journey and accomplishements so far and his monumental grass routes effort leading to this victorious election. The photo is of myself and my six year old daughter Emerson after casting the vote for Obama and waiting in anticipation for the historical news to follow later that night!
What should we do next? Spread words of optimism, hope and inspiration in the changes for the better that our future now holds.

Kyla w, Fairbanks, AK
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This is incredible. This is the first time that I've been proud to say I am an American. So many Alaskans worked so hard for Obama's campaign it was truly inspiring to see so many people come together. Obama has the ability to bring people from all walks of life and different backgrounds come together for a common cause. That is exactly what this country needs so desperately right now.
What should we do next? We need to bring troops home from Iraq and get the economy back on track.
Melora P, Kamuela, HI
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am so proud to be American! I feel like we can return to the values that bind us together and that have inspired millions to come to this great country because of what they can become in AMERICA!
What should we do next? Keep working in our communities to make change happen. It must NOT stop now!
Adrian G, Sandy, UT
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.
Jacie U, HENDERSON, NV
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I have always been inspired by Obama. To me he brings a new light and a calmness to the world in which I reside. I trust him and respect his tenacity. His diligence is a great example to everyone who had a doubt that they could not achieve their goals. "Yes We Can" says it all. "Yes We Did" says we can do it again and will. All we have to do is believe. I worked as a Co-Chair for our Caucus, a Delegate for our County and a Delegate for the State of Nevada. I have made calls, registered voters and supported the party all the way. I even took photos for Move On documenting the Las Vegas, Nevada Headquarters & Youth Headquarters.
What should we do next? Support him by getting involved with our community and helping one another by bringing peace to the world.
Hayley h, Victoria, MN
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama spells HOPE for our family and my two beautiful minority daughters adopted from China...because they will grow up knowing 'YES THEY CAN!'
What should we do next? make sure this momentum doesn't fade....it will be an uphill battle, but there is much work to be done, and we need to be united to do it.
Sharon C, Scappoose, OR
What does Obama's victory mean to you? The United States of America will never be the same. I have waited my entire adult life for a leader like Obama. Color or gender never mattered to me. Now every person of color has proof that all things are possible in this nation of contradictory yet connected united states. I have never experienced this kind of energy or wanted so much for the promises of Obama to become true. It is a new beginning for all colors, all ages ... a new history for us all.
What should we do next? Remember that it took all of us to make this happen and that it will take all of us to continue giving and working toward the ideals Obama epitomizes. More than ever the world is watching and waiting. We must be strong and compassionate, willing to sacrifice and serve, thoughtful and patient, and ready to embrace and listen to those of dissenting opinion as well as those who stand beside us. More than ever we need tolerance and wisdom.
Lisa P, Fairfax, VA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? After weeks of canvassing, and persuading, and outreach, we are completely thrilled that Virginia went blue! This is a new era for America, and we are excited to be part of it.
What should we do next? We should keep working to combat hatred and bigotry!
