The morning after

Newsweek special election edition- behind the scenes- hope the best parts aren’t written here, otherwise it could be disappointing. It could be interesting. I think I have to see it.

I suppose we should save pins, memorobelia from this campaign and put it in a time capsule or otherwise protect it so that we can take it on Antiques Roadshow when we’re 100 and tell about how we saw the first (biracial) African American president elected. I have thought about doing this for several big events in my short life, but never have actually done it.

It really is an exciting event. I was all caught up in how much I didn’t want McCain and Palin to take over from W and the relief that Obama will be the president. For reasons I have already stated, he’s the best for the job. Now, I am thinking about the historic nature of this whole thing.
