"I've seen it on the shores of New Jersey and New York, where leaders from every party and level of government have swept aside their differences to help a community rebuild from the wreckage of a terrible storm."
Congratulations Mr. President
This is NOT to put down any one's opinions or beliefs. This is to merely celebrate the conclusion of all the political campaigns, name calling, mud slinging, and finger pointing. It's over: The people have spoken and the electoral college voted - President Barack Obama and his team have another four years to try to fix and RE-unite our Untied State Of America. It's frightening how divided we have become. It's seriously time to put aside our differences and work TOGETHER... before history starts to repeat itself in more ways than one - and NOT in a good way.
Last night, Jeff had the TV on, and flipped back and forth between our regular channel ABC News and NBC at Rock Center. By far, the best coverage we saw was on NBC -- from the spectacular red & blue display at Rock Center to the red & blue map they created on the rink. It was also on NBC that I first heard Brian Williams say - "Ohio". Jeff had already gone to bed, and I was still watching the TV along with reading my twitter feed and occasional posts on Facebook. I yelled when I heard Ohio, but I also kept re-tweeting "#StayInLine" to those who were still in line (for HOURS) waiting to vote in Florida... and I also could not agree more with Mr. President: "We need to FIX that". Here in AZ, this state messed up too with early voting ballots, changing pole places, and this years hanging chad dilemma of "provisional ballots."
