What does Obama's victory mean to you? Barack Obama's victory represents what can happen when ordinary people stand together. Power to the people and to democracy... it works! And on a more personal note, its so nice to be an American. I continue to dedicate all my efforts to my son - a soldier in Iraq, not there by choice, a husband, a father... my son... may God keep him safe and bring him safely home to his family, in Indiana... where he BELONGS!!! I am so proud of him.
What should we do next? End the war, PLEASE!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I can't wait to see how Pres. Obama will help better our country, and finally give us comprehensive energy and environmental plans, and restore our standing in the world. The picture is of our cat, who only does this when Barack is on TV!!
What should we do next? Encourage him to switch jurisdiction of ANWR to the Dept. of the Interior, so that the tighter regulations will make it tougher to drill there.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? That believing in something (getting Obama a new home/job at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave) can really happen when you work together as a team, no matter what the odds are against you. THANK YOU all MoveOn.org pals that sat with me making calls to Texas & other states, baked yummies to raise funds, cheered on our new commander in chief at our DNC acceptance speech party (thx Kevin) and mostly all the hard work these last few weeks........ all brought together for this opportunity we all now get to enjoy!!!!Yes we can, yes we did and don't stop now.
What should we do next? Whatever is needed to make the next few months run smooth for all the little Dems coming in.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? I'm so proud to have brought a baby boy into this world on the day Barack Obama was elected president! (The I voted sticker was mine - but the vote was Barack's!)
What should we do next? We should make green energy into reality!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? Yes, we DID! Barack Obama President Elect 2008! To put this in perspective - I was born during the Civil Rights Movement and the first man landed on the moon on my first birthday, July 20th, 1969. In my 40th year – I am blessed to be afforded the opportunity to witness the first African-American become the president elect 2008. YES WE DID! Those who truly know me, know I began supporting Barack following the 2004 DNP convention. However, a few weeks ago – on October 22, 2008 - my support for him advanced to a new level when I decided to take my entire family to Obama’s rally here in Richmond. With kids in tow...we waited outside for more than 2-hours, but the rally was priceless. Honestly – I can not express the memories it provided nor the inspiration it provided to my husband to finally acquire citizenship. Beyond that experience – involving myself in many aspects of this campaign...donating money to the campaign, volunteering time to call potential voters, logging data, and preparing canvassing materials...elevated my support even more. I can honestly say the VICTORY in Virginia is sweeter. In the end – I know our country still have many challenges to conquer, but we have crossed a major hurdle today. I know that I chose HOPE over FEAR to CHANGE this country and this world!! I know that I would stand in line another two hours to see Obama, or another 45minutes to cast my vote for these sort of historic results – A NEW AMERICA for my children. Truly – I know many have awaited this moment longer than I and I wish I could share it with my grandmother. She - like Barack’s grandmother - instilled the urgency and importance of a good education. With that education – I have come to know that as an educator, as a woman, and most importantly – as a parent the possibility of making the IMPOSSIBLE - POSSIBLE restores my faith in the belief.....IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING! It restores my faith in knowing that Rosa sat so Martin could walk...Martin walked so Obama could run...Obama ran so children of the future can FLY to new heights! GEAUX BARACK OBAMA 2008! AKPerera
What should we do next? UNIFY!

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.

What does Obama's victory mean to you? It means that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! I am an African American Woman who is 37 years old and remember my great grandparents and grandparent stories of their voting struggles. I didn't think I would see a president of color, but it is here! I will do my best to be the best American I can possibly be! I am OVERWHELMED with my emotions! I cannot express what this means!!!
What should we do next? We should unite, all colors, races, sexes, economic backgrounds, educational backgrounds and make this country the best country that it really truly is. Do our part. Take care of our America! My America and Your America. We are the best country in the world and it's time we act like it!

What does Obama's victory mean to you? This is an incredible victory for our nation. It has restored "Faith in our system". That we the people can collectively pull together in all the tough times we are having and will be having as our nation grows together. This has united so many people around the world because President Obama is concerned with the world at large and everyone matters. He is calling on all of us to pull it together an stand up and be "One Nation Under God". He is our answer to so many prayers. God Bless each and every one. Great and Small We are all Important! Lisa Anna Bull
What should we do next? Keep working together to unite our nation to try harder. To make a difference we must help each other to do whats right. God Bless
Special S, McGehee, AR
What does Obama's victory mean to you? Obama's victory means that I had a chance to be apart of history! Growing up Black in America, has its challenges. As a child, I was always told by the elders of my race that I had to work twice as hard to even get a small chance at success. I never EVER dreamt that I'd live to see an African-American President be elected. I've had my Obama '08 sticker on my car for most of the election and I decided today that I'm not taking it off--EVER! I want everyone to know that I voted to change our nation's history and turn over a new leaf in this country. I can't wait to have kids so that I can tell them that I was a part of the New Voters that helped change our country for the better
What should we do next? We need to begin to prepare ourselves for the monumental task of solving America's economic crisis. We need to NOT expect a quick fix. We have to take all of the determination & dedication that brought us this victory and channel it into perserverance.
Mary M, Torrance, CA
