Congratulations are in order for Barack Obama. Although I don't agree with most of what he stands for, I will say that I am willing to give him chance and I do hope for the best for our country. I was at the gym this morning, watching the inaugural ceremony, when I looked over and saw a friend who appeared to be moved to tears. Knowing that she is one of the few friends I have in the Bay Area who is not a member of my church who does have the same political values I have, I was caught off guard. I immediately went to her to see what was going on. It seems she is allergic to the gym and her nose always runs when she works out. I am just glad she was not crying out of grief!! So, with the 'audacity of hope', in Obama's words, I look toward the future, knowing that the past election didn't really have any acceptable options for a conservative gal like me.

I feel ya, 100%! It is really fun to see all the people here in Chicago that feel like, by Obama making it to the White House, they have succeeded, too. It's really lifting people's spirits...let's just REALLY hope he can make GOOD changes.
