    Well, since there were 25 posts already started with this in mind, I figured I'd start my own too. Anyhow, congrats BO. It's a great day for the country, as an african american has ascended to our nations highest position, and honor. I hope he does a great job.

    Yeah ... like why would anyone wish he sucked?

    If he sucks we're screwed more than we already have been these last few months.

    C'mon, IcyPatriot. You very well know the depths that political zealots would sink to.

    Identify exactly who you're speaking about please, and perhaps they will.

    I know I didn't say those three things.

    1) America is, partly, undeniably racist.

    2) I, for one, never said a black man could not get elected

    3) The sentiment, for the most part I believe, was: Watch so that it an election is never stolen again.

    We're everything-ist like all countries. Racist. Sexist. Classist. Get over it.

    Great post. As you said, why would anyone (other than real partisans) want him to fail? In fairness to the States, you are in many ways ahead of us in racial terms. That's not to deny the huge problems though.

    I can't imagine either of our parties ever picking a black person to lead their parties and therefore become Prime Minister.

    My hopes and fears now rest in Obama's hands. I pray he is the man most of you think he is. I will support him and defend him, he is now my president. He's inheriting a mess that will not be easy to overcome. I wish him the very best, I wish us all the very best.

    Congratulations Mr Obama. May god have mercy on our souls.

    Yes BF...we are a country of imperfect humans and we always will be. On that, I can agree with you.

    but watching last night's history was something I'll never forget. I never once felt like it was a victory for African Americans, but a victory for all Americans.

    I always get in trouble saying the things that pass through my screwed up brain, now I will do it again, I would like to say something that the Messiah Groupies seem to never want to mention, that being, "Obama Is Also White"

    Why is this fact constantly Ignored---:confused:

    Ideologues from both sides are never happier than when the country tanks and they can blame it on the opposing side. Why do you think so many crazies were rooting for Bush to do a poor job as president (Mission Accompished by the way)? They love to be able to point.

    I did NOT want Obama elected, but he is, and I'm with RW. I hope he does well. It's time for America to start working on being better, from the politicians right to us poor schlubs in this ridiculous forum :)
