Democrats get psyched

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

So, I know who is going to be super duper happy tonight. It totally looks like Obama has not only won this, but slapped the McCain administration across the face. The race is not even close.

I remember being younger and wondering what amazing feat against racism or sexism would come first. Would a the first Black man become President or would the first woman become President? 

Now, it looks like history really will be made. Instead of an old, white guy preparing for the Oval Office, Obama will be the first Black President of the United States. 

He just won Virginia. It's 11 p.m. The polls have now officially closed. This is really happening. Textbooks will have a significant new passage. 

Today, I watched a "rally" by the UMass Democrats. Although only a small group shouted voting reminders to students across campus, this is probably because most students were already busy voting for Obama, and also probably because not many students knew about the rally. 

Either way, students in Amherst really turned out for this election. And a lot of them contributed to the making of history. Kudos, voters. An increase in youth voters is truly something students should be proud of.
