    If this holds up, it's great news. Obama will fllow in the footsteps of Roosevelt and Kennedy, and he'll have a Democratic Congress to work with. I'm hopeful, but I ain't opening the champagne yet.

    Based on all my posts you know all I care about is that the lefty radical in him is gone. It's not uncommon for young people to be way left or way right or way somewhere. If he governs somewhere around left of center I will survive. Even a tad left of that won't be too bad. ;)

    Yes, I know that about you. I must admit Italian-Americans, which I think you are, seem to have the most complicated political points of view! My b-in-law, who supports Obama, is the same way. He's a liberal conservative, like you like.

    Congratulations to the Obama supporters.

    As long as Obama extends the Bush tax cuts for middle class families, I
    can live with him.

    Wildo provided the following link (thanks again) which contradicted
    previous reports I had seen. This link looks more legit than the others
    I had seen.

    Taxes under Obama and McCain

    the plans
    Senator McCain would permanently extend all
    of the income tax cuts enacted by President
    Bush. Senator Obama extends almost all of the
    income tax cuts except those that apply to highincome
    households:
    he would raise the top two
    income tax rates, currently 33 and 35 percent, to
    their Clinton-era levels of 36 and 39.6 percent;
    restrict the value of exemptions and deductions
    for high-income households; and raise the top tax
    rate on dividends and capital gains to 20 percent
    from 15 percent. Both candidates would limit but
    not repeal the alternative minimum tax (AMT).

    I didn't like either candidate, so I didn't vote for either. I didn't buy into anything either one of them said. McCain had no shot to win, IMO. Bush made sure of that. The Democrats have all the power now. Let's all hope for our sakes that they do a good job.
    If they don't, well, I guess that I'll have to start looking outside of the US for sanity. :p

    Congratulations to Obama! I hope that you do a good job.

    Obama seriously kicked butt with the Latin-American vote. That vote is a growing segment of the country as we all know. Latin-Americans in this country in the past were not overly political and that is changing. Even if the republicans manage to garner more of the female vote it still won't be enough. The democrats could control the White House for the next 20 years ... believe it and get used to it.

    it's a step in the right direction and more importantly a step away from the GOP and the 8 years of Bush.

    It gives america hope and that's the important part. it sends a message to the world on anything is possible.

    I do feel bad for McCain because he's 8 years too late and he ruined his rep in the process. I would like to see him work with Obama because he does have alot of experience but do you think they can bridge the gap after this nasty election?

    Well if he can at least balance the budget like Clinton did then it will be a victory in my book.

    well this is what Mccain gets for picking this dunderhead as his running mate.. Obama and Biden were the better choice... I dont know what would have happened if he picked a Romney or a Ridge.. But its over and the better candidate won.. Congrats to Obama, and Im proud to say I voted for him.

    I don't see where McCain would be of any value. But there are some great republicans who i think will find their way aboard.

    I am unable to congratulate Obama, I still have too much mistrust of him but I hope that the liberals on this board are right and he turns out to be a great President. I am willing to give him a chance and hope that he does well.

    Back when I was always arguing with NEM I preached more in this country need to respect the office of the President ... I will now practice what I once preached and I hope many do. It's unhealthy to have 1/2 a country against the President and 1/2 a country supporting him. Like you I am willing to give him a chance and I hope he is better than everyone before him.

    That's kinda like wondering why the same bank robbers didn't come back and hit the same bank a week later...
