In the meantime, I hope everyone had the chance to get a copy of Newsweek. My newest style icon, Future First Lady Michelle Obama is on the cover. Great reading!
I guess I should admit that I am officially style stalking the fabulous Mrs. O and I'm not the only one (Adeea, Jamie, I see you, lol)
The title of this post just says it all, doesn't it?
We have elected the first African-American President of the United States of America. President-Elect Obama said "Yes we can." and YES WE DID!!!!! I never thought I would see the day where a black man would be elected to the highest position in government.
Barack Obama ran a decent campaign where he focused on the issues and laid out a plan for America. His integrity and focus ignited a spark within me. I've been Team Obama since day one and my support never wavered. He is the right man for the job and he will lead this country in a positive new direction. We've done our part in electing him but we must continue to pray for him and his family because he is in for the fight of his life.
I too was prepared for a long wait of two hours or more. My vote tote held snacks, bottled water, a magazine, a book, and my iPod. Surprisingly the whole process only took an hour. The election judges were organized and swift. They were the ultimate multi-taskers, lol!
As I left the polls, tears welled up in my eyes. The possibility of what this country is on the verge of is amazing to me. I thank God that I am alive to be a part of history.
