A stolen presidency, eight years of one outrage after another, a nightmare I thought I'd never see the end of. You? Does it seem possible we're rid of George W. Bush? And on a joyful note, the crowds in Washington are so inspiring. That people are so excited and hopeful about this change keeps me in tears.

George Bush gone, though the trauma lingers on. And my smart, competent, shiny new president, Barack Hussein Obama on the job. Miracles do happen. I am beyond ecstatic. This is magnificent.

I cried through the whole thing, as many years of emotion and frustration came to a head...the helicopter leaving was really one of the most emotional and final moments for me...he's finally gone...Cheney slithering off in his wheelchair wasn't bad eitiher!!!!!!!!! I'm ecstatic with ya!

Did you see the way he danced with Michelle while Beyonce was singing? The kiss on her cheek, the grove in his step. I teared up...

Uh, I'll wait to see how the next 4 years actually go. I'll be curious to see if things go badly you give an honest opinion, or the same old kool-aid. Bush ain't around to blame anymore. It's all on the Dems now. I wish them the best, but I'm skeptical of anyone who would appoint a pathological liar (sniper-fire!) as our chief diplomat.
