What does Obama's victory mean to you? For the first time in my adult life, I cried when President-Elect Obama was giving his speech on election night. It was SO powerful and to see all the faces of ALL colors united around him. It still gives me goose bumps to think about it. My oldest son who is 16 yo was excited about a candidate for the first time ever and proudly wears his Obama buttons. I'm so proud of our country today! I've included a pic of my hubby and one of my twins at a Biden rally near my home - it was the first time he had held an American Flag - and one of the first times in MY life I felt a true sense of pride for our country. Priceless.
What should we do next? Support Barack Obama and his administration in any way possible and keep our country moving in the correct direction - THIS direction.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Significa el gran triunfo de los que tenemos la esperanza de un nuevo Amanecer!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? The hope I have for America is so uplifted now. Obama challenges us to be united as one Nation One World. I pray, hope and know he is the right leader for the job and I feel that we will once agian be a Beacon upon a Hill as Kennedy once procliamed Thank you MOVEON.corg and America for voting in the Best President of my life time. This is my friend Donna and I enjoying eachother at a Victory Party!!! Crystal
What should we do next? Get out of this invasion in Iraq and create better teachers and more lower class jobs. Bring the work home!!
Paul D, Dallas, TX
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I have never been so proud to be an American in my life. President Obama will help this nation heal. Love and hope will mean so much more than the petty materialistic concern aboout taxes. I will gladly pay more taxes for justice in our nation and peace in the world. Poverty is a civil rights abuse. Good luck President Obama. One.
What should we do next? Care for the poor. Tax Wall Street abusers. Bring home the troops. Grow peace, justice and love here in the US and export peace and love to the world.
Sara F, Beaverton, OR
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Affordable education for my son! Travel without fear and hatred of our people. Pride and honor in our nation. Today is a new day!
What should we do next? Work collaboratively to set change in motion and keep it moving!
Heather R, Prairie Village, KS
What does Obama's victory mean to you? For me it is about what it means for my kids and their futures. My 4 and 6 year olds volunteered with me going door to door handing out information and talking to neighbors. They understand that our country needs change so by the time they are old enough to vote and go to college that there are opportunities for them. This picture is them yesterday supporting "our guy" at their pre-school.
What should we do next? Push for better education and universal healthcare.
Barbara G, Burlington, NJ
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Yes We DID!! This show of unity has inspired so many people it is incredible. We support you! We only wish your grandmother had not passed away, and had lived to hug the next president of the United States of America. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
What should we do next? Pray that the Congress and Senate all work with President Obama to see the changes become reality.
Beverly R, Wrangell, AK
What does Obama's victory mean to you? My heart is overflowing, for the first time in many years, with love and hope for our country. We have chosen, with our hearts as well as our minds, a man who will use both to serve and lead our country. I feel proud to be an American again!
What should we do next? There are many obstacles to overcome, many crucial decisions to be made. I don't pretend to know which one should be tackled first. But-with a focus on inclusion instead on elitism, on equality and justice instead of personal gain, and on love instead of fear, our new leader will use his brilliant mind to help us move toward a new UNITED States that we can be proud to serve and call home.
Joanna J, Milpitas, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I invited friends and neighbors to join me to watch the election returns and as the election was called and we watched his inspiring speech with both applause and tears, I looked around my family room and this is who was there; my closest friend, an African-American whose 74 year old mother was raised in Little Rock, Arkansas during the attempts to integrate schools, her husband, a 5th generation Californian of Italian heritage, their daughters, one, 18, who just voted for her first time, one only 9 years old, a former teenage mom who is now enrolled in college, my own daughter, her boyfriend who is Mexican, my son with special needs and even a conservative Republican. The next morning when I walked my son to his bus stop I was greeted with High fives by two girls from India, who were glad we got it right. Barack Obama is the president we need, the president for ALL of us. I am filled with hope and a sense of possibility.
What should we do next? health care for all, energy independence, campaign and voting reforms, sensible, meaningful trade policies. There's a lot of work to be done, it's time to be bold.
Karen W, Port Orange, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? This is the first election where I felt truly passionate about a presidential candidate. It gave me the chance to teach my children about political involvement and the changes needed in our government. I am hopeful for their future, the future of our country, and the future of our entire planet. I look forward to 8 years of solid, thoughtful, intelligent leadership.
What should we do next? There are so many issues to tackle, where do we start? Global warming seems a logical beginning - it will create jobs, decrease our dependence on oil, and begin to bring back respect from the world.
Betsy R, Seattle, WA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? My son Henry can grow up knowing that all of his dreams can come true.
What should we do next? We need to focus on developing the public education system in America, particularly math and science education, so that we stay competitive. Without that, we won't be able to afford other progressive dreams.
Linda S, Harwich, MA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? The end of cynicism! They say a cynic is a disappointed romantic: that was me for the last 8 years. Now I actually have some (dare I say it?) HOPE. I have a terrible case of phone-aphobia, but I actually got onto the phone bank & called complete strangers to urge them to vote for Obama. I was a nervous wreck, but it was worth it. Now I can be proud to say that I helped elect Obama, & proud to be an American again!
What should we do next? The first thing we must do is end the war in Iraq. The next thing we must do is get our civil rights back! I hope that will help us achieve those goals. President Obama can’t do it alone!
