This is the start of a new. The FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT is finally here-- Barack Obama. I don't think I have been this proud to be an American ever. It makes my eyes well up just thinking of the fact that there are so many old African-Americans who are seeing what they have waited for since their days picking cotton under the hot sun. We have finally gotten over the sin that has haunted us Americans since the beginning of our country's history. Racism shall be forgotten. What might be even better is that foreigners will have such a better image of us. Now instead of them thinking of fat, bald, greedy, white men when they hear the word "America," they will think of us as the country that finally saw the light and wants to change.

We, the younger generation, run this world now. As the older generations tried to hang on to their conservative morals, we said "NO" and elected someone who knows what we want. We are bringing people of all ages, races, genders, and sexual orientations together to sing in peaceful harmony. Now we can really be the UNITED states of America.

Congratulations! You're right, as an Australian I see America a little different now. For a great percentage of the population to commit to change and give America, or should I say 'the free world' a chance to spread its wings. :-)

I am THRILLED to see someone of a different race in office, we are a racially diverse country and for a long time that hasn't been represented too well in politics, so that is wonderful! However I must say I am not a fan of Obama very much, otherwise (different morals values and views and what not), but I will pray he does well as our new president anyway! :)

I am thrilled at the outcome of this election. Yes, electing an African-American as the head of this country is huge (to say the least!), but for me, this election was so much more than that. It totally set the tone for the way this country is heading. Do we want more of the same elitist attitudes, or do we want an inclusive government that looks out for the best interest of the entire country? Thank God the people have spoken!
