    I'm a republican, black female. I voted for Bush in 2000 and 2004. John McCain is the Senator from my home state. I crossed party lines and voted for Barack Obama today. Make of that what you will,it's time to move our country forward! I am proud to be an American!

    America just bought into a whole ton of lies. Yes, Obama is a great public speaker, but he has no substance.

    With a democratic controlled congress and prez you can kiss our constitution goodbye. Losing these checks and balances is not something to celebrate!
