What does Obama's victory mean to you? The victory means everything to me and my family. We live in the middle of the reddest part of Indiana. We are fed up with politics as usual and Obama represents everything we need in this country. Not only is he the smartest candidate we have seen in many years, he also has organized one of the biggest grass roots systems ever seen since the electronic and digital age came about. If he runs the White House anything like he ran his campaign, I believe there is nothing this man can't accomplish. He has inspired me, my family and millions of regular 'Joe's' like myself and I am very proud to have his campaign materials plastered all over my house. Way to go USA. Today and for the future, I am very proud to be an American. We finally got an election right. YES WE CAN!
What should we do next? Communication is vital. We need to keep these lines open to keep us informed as to what Obama needs us to do. We have an army of volunteers, let's not let it disband.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's victory restores hope in better times ahead. It will be a long, hard road after 8 years of havoc, but we are in very capable hands. Barack took the high road throughout the campaign and he and Michelle are real class acts. Your knowledge, command of the subjects, charisma, and integrity will restore credibility to the highest office in the land. Great job! Ilene K.
What should we do next? Make sure Franken is fairly treated in MN and keep the positive momentum going with the president-elect.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means my faith in people has once again been renewed. It was incredible to see the the people of this country put aside their differences and join together to elect Barack. I was honored to do some phone work alongside so many amazing tireless people helping elect Barack. Election night at the Century Plaza was a joy to behold. Peace to us all.
What should we do next? Stay as active as we can to help the planet and it's peoples.
Luis P, Orlando, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's victory represents the real "sleeping giant" - and that is the people themselves... if we can do this, then imagine how much we could do if we always worked together!!

Judith D, Denver, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? We shed tears of joy and hope. I voluteered as a driver for convention and made phone calls. When our yard signs disappeared, my husband got creative.
What should we do next? Live a healthier live style to take pressure off the health care system. Each make one donation of time or money to a person in need or an organization that assists such individuals.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I am amazed at the fact that a real victory has been won. I have a renewed faith in democracy in America. Yes We Can and Yes we did!

Angela K, Asehville, NC
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Change is good, necessary and inevitable... with President Obama, those changes can be positive and confident as a stepping stone to ensure that our planet earth CAN be a happier, better place for ALL! I feel comfort, pride, and so much joy in knowing that so many others fortunate enough to be alive during this beautiful, touching milestone of the human race... feel this way too! I am now proud to be an American! We need to show our wonderful new president, and his family, and our fellow American's that we are PROUD of him and are once again able to find faith in our country.
What should we do next? We need to respect this precious man, and the precious opportunities we now have... with a force of intelligent, vigilance, caring, compassionate, informed support! We should stay strong and confident, and ensure that we are blessed with a second term from this wonderful man as our president!!!!
Michelle T, San Clemente, CA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? HOPE for a smarter, better tomorrow...and that when we work together, anything is possible!
What should we do next? Meet with the smartest people on the planet and figure out how to solve our problems in a bi-partisan way...then communicate with the American people and let us weigh in, so that we really stay connected.
Mary R, Lincoln, NE
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It meant my first time actively campaigning, because this was my first election as a mother. My daughter relies on me to help make the world a better place for her. Obama's victory means we are already starting to regain the respect of the international community, to heal the wounds of the past eight years, and to build a better future for all our daughters and sons.
What should we do next? Build consensus among all party players. Unify, as much as possible, the different sides of the issues, and address the problems of our country the same way Obama has approached everything: with poise, with determination, and with humility.
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.
Kristi O, Denver, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I felt so hopeful after canvassing for the Obama campaign and then last night, it became obvious that all the efforts that were put forth by the volunteers for the campaign paid off!!
What should we do next? We need to get together!!
Jarrah W, Melbourne, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I've come to realize that we are truly, "meant for something". I believe with all my heart and soul that Barack was meant to be one of the greatest Presidents the United States has ever known. I am honoured and humbled that he has taken on this tremendous responsibility for "we the people". Bless you President Obama, Bless you...
What should we do next? I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and get started, how can I be of service Mr. President?
Jennifer F, Sewell, NJ
What does Obama's victory mean to you? I feel like I just woke up from a long coma and I can't wait to resume my love affair with this country.
What should we do next? Let's bring our soldiers home.

What should we do next? Let's bask in the glory a while, and know that we can do anything as long as we believe we can.
