Congratulations, Mr. President! And Congratulation to the First Family!
It's over and huge numbers voted though numbers are lower, in most states, than 2008. A hurricane of the magnitude of Sandy made for a lot less voters to the polls in the east. But, anyway.....Congratulations, to Us! We had ourselves an election, and the popular vote agreed with the electoral numbers. No need for judges to decide!
Personally, I was determined to not hear that much about the election until it was over, so stayed in another country last evening. But, I had to put down a rabid fellow who was intruding on my air space in Thule; early on, I had left ceramics when racial stuff from two racists reared it's ignorant, ugly head. Happily, later in the evening we have a more or less Political Free Zone in Thule, and someone was in violation but could be excluded.. I stayed out of other social media and was told that facebook was really a war zone.
I'm glad for women and children, mostly because it means that gains made in health care in their behalf will stay in place. And I'm glad that the person who gained this much for them, in the face of HUGE opposition, will now have the chance to go forward with plans to rebuild our country, help the middle class, and direct the financial institutions that nearly wrecked the country with their greed and recklessness.
Here's a woman who needs some help!
Took my beads to sister's so we could play nice. Helped her to celebrate, too. I'm so happy that Elizabeth Warren won the election. Congratulations, m'Lady!
