The Empire State Building glowed blue in honor of the winner. New York City went absolutely crazy last night after 11:00 PM EST when it was announced Barak Obama will be our 44th president. It was a festive night in NYC from Harlem to Rockefeller Center to Times Square to Brooklyn. Times Square looked like it was New Year's Eve and the map of the United States was the only thing on Rockefeller's ice rink.

Our new president has a lot of mess to clean up, and that's an understatement. It seems the whole world has such high hopes and expectations for him. He certainly is a breath of fresh air. We can't wait until the current occupant at the White House packs his belongings and gets the hell out. Hopefully Bush won't do any more damage in his last days; someone needs to ground him.

By the way, PBS's Frontline had a great show The Choice 2008 that's worth watching. We were surprised at the detest McCain had for Bush, supposedly comparing him to the tin man (because he had no heart), scarecrow (because he had no brain), and the cowardly lion (because he had no courage).
