We gave em the big boot

As the nation watched the returns unfold it appeared pretty early on that we would see a big Democratic victory. To me it means more than that. It is a generational leap where we are passing the torch to a new wave of young people who have been energized by this historic campaign.
This is now a modern era one in which racial barriers have been broken. Journalism is supposed to be the first rough draft of history, but now it’s the second draft — blogging is the first. I see this as much of a positive milestone as the falling of the Berlin Wall, man walking on landing on the moon or the Beatles arriving in America. It proves to the world as President Elect Obama says that "America is a place where all things are possible."
