What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama is who I foted FOR rather than voting against someone else. For me he is the end of embarrassment and shame, and the dawn of renewed pride in being American. Thank you, Barack, for leading us to this moment. I look forward to supporting you in the difficult journey ahead of us.
What should we do next? Work together with people of all parties to better this country. Work with people of all nations to better this world.
Eugene S, Danville, PA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? As a life-long Republican, it was interesting that the first presidential campaign that I ever worked for or contributed to was that of a Democrat. Barack's message is the right one for today, the right one for me and the right one for America.
What should we do next? Stay involved... be part of the voice... make Obama's presidency "our presidency"... He's doing this on our behalf, and we can share the burden.
Megan W, Brownsburg, IN
What does Obama's victory mean to you? For me this means our nation is once again of the people, for the people, BY THE PEOPLE! We did it! God Bless the USA!
What should we do next? We should reach out to those who did not want Obama to be President and try to make them understand why things are going to be okay.
Tim M, Seattle, WA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Now that was patriotic America!!! Awesome. Be the Change you want to see!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Now that the immense joy is settling in and the feelings of pride, hope and victory shine on my every thought and human interaction my mind turns to thoughts of the future we will all be creating, as we have created this victory together. The support of the American people to elect Barack Obama as the 44th President of our dear country has touched my spirit in such a way that I know for certain, I will not remain the same. My involvement and desire to stand behind and place my energies toward the policies of President Obama flow stronger now than at any other time in my past. I am dedicated to healing America, healing the world and uniting our world. Love to you all! - Tina Marie Jones
What should we do next? Sign up all who want to serve, organize community leaders and keep the energy flowing... we are ready to participate just as we did to elect Barack. I am ready to help in any way I can!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's victory gives me hope in this country for my 7-year old daughter as well as for all the rest of us. And it should inform the rest of the world that most of this country does not agree with the policies of the present administration and we realize that we need to move forward – way forward. I thank Barak and his brave family for all that they have already given and will continue to give to this country. I am moved by his grace, spirit, intelligence, and ability to bring out the best in us. He embodies the word "patriotic."
What should we do next? We must help Obama help this country or the nay-sayers will just point their fingers again. We need to listen to each other and strive toward equality and respect globally. And when this may be difficult, we need to think of how Obama handled his opponents' bashing with dignity and respect.
Freda W, Helena, MT
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Finally...proud to be an American. Hopeful that we will now have the tools to take better care of our planet.
What should we do next? celebrate. end the war. improve our relations with countries around the globe.
Risa R, Boise, ID
What does Obama's victory mean to you? We are proud of our President. For the first time in my life... I want an American flag flying out side my home! My daughter is a part of history ~ WE made this happen! God bless America and keep our President safe!
What should we do next? Stay involved! With the President's direction, organize and work in our communities to help one another! I don't want to wait until Jan 20th. I want to start NOW!
Robert S, Bend, OR
What does Obama's victory mean to you? After endless hours of hard work, I am filled with more pride in our country than I have ever felt in this lifetime.
What should we do next? I, for one, am getting involved in community activities that will help those less fortunate. It is going to be a hard winter for some this year.
dave w, Boulder, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? 'i gave up on politics after nixon won by a landslide. it wasn't until i heard barack speak 4 years ago that i had hope that power doesn't necessarily corrupt. i've never donated to a candidate, never worked for a campaign...until now. the sense of ownership i have in this campaign and the faith i have in barack has lead me to work as much as 16 hours a day for his campaign for months now. this sat. and sun. we had folks over for a phone bank. the synergy and the shared belief that we COULD make a difference has made the efforts by all not a chore but something we all felt was a once in a lifetime experience. i'm an agnostic and not prone to hero worship...but i have to admit that barack has changed my life...this campaign has left me with a positive feeling about our country and a sense of community that i thought was lost long ago. doesn't mean i'm not going to hold obama's feet to the fire if he messes up...but you know what? i think he'll listen to me. that says it all.
What should we do next? repeal patriot act, close gitmo, stop torture, legitimize the EPA, stop warrantless wiretapping on americans, investigate adn stop all hiring practices based on theological or idealogical preferences, tax all think tanks and churches with a political agenda, disband mercenary forces [blackwater, halliburton, KBR]--restore the constitution
Christopher S, Pompano Beach, FL
What does Obama's victory mean to you? A new world order is on the way. We ressurrected the american dream, we ressurrected what America truly is to the world.
What should we do next? Fix the economy, please!
Rebecca C, New Milford, CT
What does Obama's victory mean to you? i have never felt better about being a human being. thank you to my fellow americans (or should i say: ex-prisoners?)! thank you for waiting in those lines. thank you for triumphing over ignorance and intolerance. thank you for uniting for good and for change. thank you for giving me a leader i can look up to. a first lady to emulate. the most beautiful white house i could ever imagine. thank you for changing up the gray matter. and for giving every child in this country reason to believe that they can be anything they want to be. every child in this world. thank you for giving me hope. now please stop making me cry. p.s. can i get a puppy, too?
What should we do next? Get involved in the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans and the entire Gulf Coast.
Rachel C, Lynchburg, VA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's victory means so much to me. After the last 8 years, I was afraid to hope for this but I did, anyway. I worked hard and went door to door and talked to people who reinforced my hope. I talked to so many African Americans whose eyes just lit up at the mention of Obama's name. As happy as I am today, I am more happy for them because I realize what this must mean to them. God bless them all and what they've been through. Thank God better days are ahead for us all!
What should we do next? We should support Obama in his work and be there for him every step of the way. He believes in us and I believe in him.
Anna D, Surprise, AZ
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 should we do next? Work together in peace for a strong U.S.A.
