Yes!! It's a done deal!

Remember Twaun, aristocrats (or gentlemen as I'd prefer to call us) need to be magnanimous in times of victory and gracious in times of defeat.

We shouldn't gloat about the victory. I don't think President-elect Obama would want us to.

I am not gloating...I haven't even posted since he officially won. I posted that first family pic during the day.

There is nothing to gloat about, but much to be proud of as one country. Obama's win is not my personal victory. It is a triumph for American History. I didn't win anything. I voted for the best candidate and the majority of the country (and most of the minority population -- i.e. blacks, women, Latinos, and young people -- along with whites) voted for him too.

I'm not sure that I can classify a post about pride and happiness as "gloating" by any means. This blogger has been an active participant in this political process, just like many of us. We should be able to express our joy in a positive way, just as Twaun has done so. After all, this is a moment in history that will forever change the face of American politics. And I for one am certainly proud of my country; in fact, I can't remember the last time (if ever) that I've felt this good about the United States of America. Is that gloating? I certainly think not. I applaud Twaun for taking the high road at this time when it is very tempting to lash out at the ignorance and hate that we Mississippians see on a daily basis. A true aristocrat indeed!
