What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means that all 3 of my sons can aspire to be president (if they're crazy enough)
What should we do next? keep the presure on to end the war in Iraq

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.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? At age 64, and one who has come through the March on Washington, Poor Peoples march,having been shot at,jailed,having to step off of the side walks for others to walk by, having to sit on the back of the bus and train,and much much more, I am so Godly happy and over joyed to see President Obama and his wife and family fulfill the dreams and prayer of the people of this country. Volunteering to get this great man elected is well worth all the sleep and rest i missed. I Know God has ordained this appointment. I will pray daily for his success. This pitcher show some of the for runners that helped get us to this point.God bless America.
What should we do next? Start community support groups to work on the issues the President earmarks. To help our young parents with ideas on how to raise there kids in a way that will show them that they can achieve anything they want to. Volunteer in schools,share our history with the youth so they will understand what we had to go through to get them to this place.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I joined MoveOn way back when we were trying to get the Republican's to MOVEON from Clinton's infidelity to substantive work. For all these years I've felt like I was wading in mud... WE'VE Succeeded! Now we have a president and congress that can move on to the things we think important: global warming, jobs, economy, infrastructure, civil rights, and oh, so much more!
What should we do next? Advocate for civil rights, tax breaks for middle and working class families, increased taxes for the 5% and businesses, import taxes on business in Dubai and elsewhere.

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? It means hope! It means change! It means Americans have settled the scores of the past and time for us to loook forward with pride and hope!!!
What should we do next? I agree and whole heartedly share the overwhelming sense of accomplishment that we all witnessed last night. Many of our ancestors bled and died for just this moment in time. Yet, as a people our work really just begins. We only satisfied half of the equation. Now we need to be working to ensure that we assist him in this position. Nothing to small-recycling to assist with the environment, etc. Now is not the time to sit back and relish in this accomplishment. It time to roll up our sleeves and join Mr. Barrack Obama, our President in making America and Americans the best country in the world. Let's make this a better world for all of us ans work on 2012.
Jeffrey S, Home Of The Brave, NY
What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means that there is still a democratic process. It means that we are all created equal and that Dreams do come true! It means peole are waking up and realizing that the masses can change the course of history. It means we do have a huge part of forming the future of the Earth! Humanity! Educating and housing the poor and under developed in the world. It means it is ok to cry happy tears for every race that makes up America It means we are THE United States Of Americans
What should we do next? Help teh poor and under educated. Help the elderly so they can enjoy their last years. QUIT wasting gas so we are not dependant on the Middle East. GO GREEN and force our government and BIG Industrial leaders to lower prices and make solar and wind power more affordable and more available! NOW we need to save the Earth! We could all hel make history and declare today the day we STARTED to Save the Earth!
Joy S, Atlanta, GA
What does Obama's victory mean to you? God has blessed America!!!!
What should we do next? Support him by asking ,what each of us can do to help our country?
sarah w, DURANGO, CO
What does Obama's victory mean to you? RELIEF! THE WORLD WILL BE A BETTER MUCH MORE SAFE PLACE FOR MY SON.
What should we do next? ENCOURAGE OBAMA TO ORIENT OUR COUNTRY TOWARDS THE LIFE STYLE NEEDED TO PROTECT OUR ENVIRONMENT. IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT ENERGY, IT'S ABOUT PLASTIC, LANDFILLS, ETC.! ALSO ENCOURAGE HEALTH CARE REFORM + ORIENT HEALTH CARE TOWARDS PREVENTION. EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN ON BOTH ISSUES IN OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Marjie B, Salt Lake City, UT
What does Obama's victory mean to you? At age 48 I just bought my first American flag to hang in front of my house! I'm SO proud of my country for the first time - an indescribable joy.
What should we do next? Keep it up. Keep connecting, communicating, working together - especially with those who now feel disenfranchised as we did for the last eight years - showing the same humble clarity, strength and grace that Obama displayed last night in Chicago.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It was a joy to volunteer for Obama because we were making History and we never doubted it, not for a single second. This is Lu Ann for Indiana she worked tirelessly for Barack and a times was very ill. These are the kind of people who believed in Senator Obama.
What should we do next? I would like to see an army of "Volunteers for Obama" while he is busy getting the Country up and running again.
Suzanne D, Scotch Plains, NJ
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Richard and I worked on the campaign making calls and talking one to one. We are over the moon! This has restored my faith in not only our country but in humanity. Obama is a symbol to me, of all that I have believed to be the answer to racial and social injustice. Let us continue to empower his vision as we all need to work for the greater good. We have a lot of work to do to restore the dignity of our nation. But with this kind of passion, integrity, intelligence and energy we can do it. Yes we CAN!
What should we do next? Form an alliance of volunteers to restore our country. whatever it takes to bring us back as leaders of a world that leaves no one behind. We Can DO IT.
Cecelia L, Fargo, ND
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Finally!! I am so excited to see what is going to happen now! I finally feel like a part of my government. I've voted before, of course, but never felt that sense of rightness, of belonging, of truly believing in what we can all do together. It really is true- United we stand, divided we fall. I am ready to stand up for what I believe in, with those I believe in. I am ready to stand with Barack!!
What should we do next? After the economy is more stable, I would like to see legislation pushed forward regarding same-sex marriage and legalization of marijuana. The government could even tax it, and grow it... like President Washington did... :)
