The election is over. And I don’t mind saying, good riddance to bad rubbish.
I don’t mean McCain. In fact, I was a McCain supporter (gasp…the horrors!).
What I do mean is the election. I am so relieved that the election is over. I think there was so much bad blood and mudslinging (not just by the candidates) that it has put a bad taste in my mouth over politics in general.
The important thing is what happens next. Though I might not agree with most of Obama’s politics, I do believe that there needs to be a change in America. And more than 50% of Americans believed that Barack Obama was the man to change it. Who am I to argue with the majority?
So, there won’t be any, “Don’t Blame Me–I Voted McCain!” or “He’s Not MY President” bumper stickers on my car. I’ll get rid of my pro-McCain ravatar at Ravelry, even.
The election is over. It’s time to come together as a country now and move forward. Barack Obama is going to be the next President of the United States.
I’m anxious to see what he does with it. After all, he is my President.
