What does Obama's victory mean to you? The beautiful experiment of Democracy works! When things got off course, when the Constitution has been threatened and separation of church and state off balance, we, THE PEOPLE, stood up through this system of government and put things back on the track of Democracy...freedom and JUSTICE for ALL! Thank you fellow countrymen and women! Heartfelt gratitude to President Obama and Vice President Biden
What should we do next? Keep informed. Participate where and when you can. Respect one another. Stay positive and send that energy and support to Barack and Joe and their families. Yes we did!!!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Senator Obama's victory to me means: 1. Having a President who you feel really cares about us meaning everyone! 2. A President who makes us,every class of people feel we are somebody who matters! 3. Most of all know the importance of God and Country. May God give you the wisdom you need to run a successful office. My prayers are with you. God Bless you Senator Obama and soon to be in office Mr. President and keep you safe.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? From the first time I heard his voice at the democratic convention, I printed Obama for President signs from my pc. I believed then, we achieved Tuesday, ready to work tomorrow!
What should we do next? We should form community groups and continue to use the e-tech strategy to ensure every community has a representative voice to take to congress and the President.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I worked the phones sporadically over a period of a couple of months and wrapped up on Election Day morning. At times, it was difficult, but whenever I got a live person to say they agreed with us, it made the previous 20 no answers and three crabby people worth it. Obama's victory has restored my faith in our republic and our political process, means anything and everything is possible, and gives me hope for the futures of my two sons.
What should we do next? Stay connected and avail ourselves of his request to help set us on a straight and positive course.
Kim A, Makawao, HI
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am overcome by emotion today. The phone calls, the emails, the endless hours of conversation with believers and non-believers alike...America listened and Americans spoke loud and clear with their votes yesterday. I believe!
What should we do next? We must keep this movement going, on a local basis, to solve our community's problems and to support President Obama with our voices and deeds in accomplishing the daunting tasks that lay ahead of him. This is only the beginning of the journey!
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.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I've been with Obama since day one. I feel like I've worked hard, convinced others to vote for the right person. And this time, the person I chose and wanted WON!! After seeing and hearing him Tuesday late night, my aunt called. She's 70 years old. She yelled "Obama, Obama, Obama". At that moment I realized that Obama won and I voted for him because of my aunt Ruby. She has fought for civil rights in the 50's-60's, she sat at those counter tops in Woolworths, she rode the bus, she knocked on doors and she prayed and waited for change. She told me she didn't think she would see this change in her lifetime, "now they can walk on me". I thank my Aunt Ruby for fighting for this day for making this possible for me and this country and this world.
What should we do next? Continue to educate, educate, educate. Because there is something to strive for; the bar has been raised and it's time for us to rise up to the bar.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? My father worked in law enforcement during the riots in 1968 in Chicago. He didn't get home for two days. I have lived thru martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson, always keeping hope for america. And now there is hope. Life in our nation now turns a page; it is a new day. With opportunity for all races, all people. My belief is that we will now move forward, as a people and a nation. The progress will be slow at first, but deliberate. It will be accomplished together. At 45, I saw a Black Man and A White Man hold hands and approach this new day together. I beautiful sight I never thought I would live to see. I am grateful that my parents were also alive to see this glorius day.
What should we do next? badn together, help our new president and cabinet use the force of three million online supporters to change America for the better-for everyone.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It's the most important, positive thing that has happened in our lifetime. We caucused for Obama, volunteered by making phone calls, and talked to everyone we know. We are elated that the tide has finally turned.
What should we do next? Fix this country - together.
