The Times they are a changing...

So, what's next?

"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer."

Obama's Acceptance Speech at Chicago's Grant Park.

Maybe this time - maybe - 'possible' will be moved through 'probable' to 'actual'. Maybe...

Maybe... maybe... Obama's campaign evolved from the merest whisper of hope. It gradually grew into the mighty roar of yesterday's unequivocal turnout.

So, Maybe indeed, Dick... :)

Hip, hip, hooray, Rachel :))))

A Very Special Turn Of Events.
And that's an understatement!!

BarbaraS said...

Ah, we are noted for our understatement on this side of the pond, Jan: it's what we're loved for ;)

Liz said...

ditto Barbara : )...fantastic news, makes it easier to believe in the power of the people (just thought of Cliff Richard's song there ; )) when they put their minds to things...

You used the h word there - hope - what a precious commodity.

BarbaraS said...

Yes, Debi -hope. A precious thing that we don't hear much about... we now!

Liz, it's been amazing to witness.

I was anxious when at six on Wednesday I turned on the TV on BBC World News, then I literally jumped for joy.
Also after some bad predictions by Todd Swift in his blog who had written he was convinced MacCain would make it at the end...

Obama struck the viewer because he is elegant, not only outside but inside too. An elegance that opens up to sincerity and determination and maybe the possibility of applying a little bit of that "communism" to the society without making us feel "communism" as a bad world after all its failures but rather for the first time transforming it in a real way to care for all those who are most unprotected and need care.

I like that a lot: elegant on the inside and the out; thanks Davide
