Liberals really won big on all counts last night. Obama as president, control of the senate, and possession of marijuana is now legal in new Hampshire and two or three other states voted to make medical marijuana legal. Good times.

Although three states voted to ban gay marriage =/

Wow, the Republicans have a majority in the House and Senate in Tennessee.  This hasn't happened since the Reconstruction, and even then I don't know if they had both chambers.  I can say from personal experience that some members of the Democratic leadership in the House are right bastards, so I'm glad to see them bumped out of power.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I just found out that people were crying tears of joy this morning on a danish news channel because of Obama's victory.

Even though I live in the UK, Americans have to remember this affects us too.
I should imagine in a positive way.

Well I hope this works out as well for us Americans as it does for everyone. I don't want us all to be at odds with each other all the time.

I hope he can unite the country, I hope he can deliver on his promises.  But remember, ~48% of the vote was against Obama.  He has a long way to go, and as Lego said earlier, I think some people are going to be dissapointed when he doesn't do everything he promised within his first six months.

Obama is going to burn all of those people in hellfire anyway so we shouldn't worry too much. :)

It was worth staying up until four just to hear everybody cheer.

Fun night.
Not a winner anymore.

On Thursday, Obama is expected to receive his first top-secret intelligence briefing, similar to the one Bush gets every day, according to U.S. officials familiar with the process.

That should to turn him whit... er... um...

On a serious note, I wonder how much of his 'plan' will be altered when the truth is laid before him?
