I cannot believe it. He won. Obama won. The world is changing. People are getting smarter. Birds are singing. Planets are aligning. I may even learn how to dance.

Our President.

Eight years ago I was sitting in Bill and Lauren's living room in Georgetown, eating Halloween candy, drinking beer, and dying a little each time new results were announced. I went home feeling defeated, and not wanting to turn on the television the next morning, because it would mean confirming I lived in a Republican America -- and, at that time, I had no idea how bad it would really get. The next month of arguing only made it worse, and took more of my faith in America away.

Today, I am renewed. God bless America.

Sorry Lib, not even Barack can teach you to dance.
