Wow~! What a night! Whichever side won there was going to be a very big and very important first.

The year I was born interracial marriages were actually illegal in this country. My own relationship with my beautiful man would have been illegal. It is like a miracle to think that in my lifetime things have changed so much.

I heard a very wonderful introduction to Obama yesterday on the radio. It was from a student in Philadelphia, I believe. It went something like this:

Rosa Parks sat so MLK would walk

MLK walked so Obama could run

Obama ran so that we all could fly.

Immortal words. No matter what side you were on, this was a fantastic election between two very worthy men.

I wonder what is next? We might be in for a bit of a bumpy take off.

D'you know what's really been bothering me? MLK said his dream was of a day when his children would be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. And yet ALLLLL the freakin media coverage I see of Obama is about the color of his skin. I'd like to hear more about the content of his character, I don't care what color his skin is. I just feel like this presidency should be about more than race relations.

It was an Historic race from the beginning to the end. It makes me proud to know that my daughter can run for president if she wants to. There is no longer a glass ceiling. :)

Somehow, I think he was elected because of the content of his character. As far as I know, african-americans are still a minority race in this country. That means people of all kinds of races voted for him. I did and I'm white.

It is historic because he has opened up the political world to all of us, not just white men. We are all Americans.

I hope the media cools it too.

woops........had to do a edit......it was Lisa 16 who gave such a great quote from a Philly student. Thanks loved it

Bunnie

Gosh, Isn't it amazing how we can all see things in such a different perscpecitve.

I didn't think Obama or the media were playing the race card. IMO there were so many times he tried to down play it with positive statements about what he wanted to be remembered for. Sure he is proud of his mixed heritiage but I didn't see him using it his advantage.

Obama even quoted MLK with the 'content of his character and not the color of his skin' as you said.

Isn't it great we live in this country where we can share how we can see and listen to the 'same interviews' and come away with totally different opinions of what we hear.

Viva la difference. :)

Thanks for sharing. You know I was just thinking.......Maybe we see things differently becasue of the news stations or cable stations we listen to. :lol:

Would really be interesting to see if we listened to the same ones. ;)

I would love to see this thread continue in a fun and informative manner as I know we aren't to really be able to talk politics here.......

Maybe we can call it..............media interpretations instead. :lol:

Edited the post and Opted out - no comment after all - Best wishes to all


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Exactly. It doesn't matter to me if we have a black president, or a woman. I honestly feel this country is ready for either one. The problem with this election is, it was based on the color of his skin, and not his character. From all I have learned about the content of his character, we are in big trouble. Many people were afraid to vote against him, they were afraid of the uprising that may have occured had he not been elected, and well they should be. By the way, he isn't our first black president, he is bi-racial, remember his mother is white. We seem to be an angry nation, we need to get back to taking care of our country, no matter what color skin we have.

When our country is having troubling times, we should pull together to fix our ailing country, we shouldn't have to worry about who is going to attack who. I am worried about what will happen to this country now, I hope my worry will be unwarranted.

This is not directed any anyone. There are a few subjects on this forum that tend to bring out a lot of emotion. Politics is one of them. A good healthy discussion is great, but please keep in mind that words can offend. Choose wisely. ;):D ....carry on.

I think both of the candidates have good characters. I voted on the issues. Especially health care. It's shameful that a country like ours lets people go without proper medical care. We can spend billions killing innocent children and people in Iraq, but we won't take care of our own citizens medical needs. That needs to change. Unfortunately, I think health care is already dead in the water due to the bailout of the economy.
