    YIPPEE!! I just got up a little while ago, and when we went to bed around 11pm, we had not heard yet that Florida and Virginia had turned blue. It’s a great day for America and the World!!!!!

    All this election has proven is that corruption and money trump integrity every time. Mr. “Game-Changer” showed that he has no more character than the creeps on Capitol Hill. For a guy who so loudly opposed the “trickle-down” theory of economics, he certainly didn’t mind abandoning his promise to stay away from corporate funding in this election. He received a whole bunch of corporate trickle which enabled him to outspend McCain (who stuck to his word) by hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising, flooding the airwaives in key battleground states with up to four times as many ads as the GOP. I guess the evils of TDE only apply to the other guy, huh Barry?

    Obama’s no different than anyone else, as you will soon see. But, hey, what can I say? Love is blind, isn’t it?

    We are all so happy for the USA today… I just wish we could change our local governments now!

    Like France’s… or Canada’s… may the USA lead the change!

    Brad, thanks for raising the issue of public financing of political campaigns. Yes, back in June Obama announced he was opting out of the public financing system and McCain criticized him for this. But how about McCain? It’s pretty hard to prove that he stuck by the system. I think the primary reason Obama raised more than McCain was simply that Obama had more contributors, and not just fat cat corporate interests, but literally millions of small donors, like me for instance. I have to disagree with you Brad. Obama is quite a unique politician; he might even be able to pull this country together, impossible as that may seem at this point.

    Yes, Zhu, let’s hope the USA can lead the change, but it’ll not be an easy task. I think in his victory speech Obama pointed this out pretty clearly. Let’s not get our hopes up too fast. The task will be daunting.
