While there are MANY issues that Obama stands for that I am ADAMANTLY against, I felt a GREAT sense of pride and joy watching him last night giving his speech. Pride and joy that when I turn on my TV, I see a president that has brown skin like me. Pride that a black man has achieved what no other has. Pride that a historically racist nation united and elected a black president. Joy that he has opened the door and one day my sons or daughters could be president when less than a century ago this would have been an impossible task…Our nation TRULY has come a long way. I honestly was not convinced until yesterday that we would EVER have a black president.

I am happy that he has OVERWHELMINGLY showed that when you put your mind to something you can achieve ANYTHING. Despite all odds..even if you are the least likely to succeed.

Oh yeah, I just wanted to say You Go Girl to first lady: Michelle Obama….How cool is that to have a black first lady?

But I must admit that I will be extremely sad if he signs that Freedom of Choice Act into law….. But I guess you can’t have it all…

I must also admit that I am not so convinced that his “share the wealth” economic plan will work for the long haul. However, I do believe it will relieve the immediate pressure. (Parable of the talents). Not that I was 100% on board with Mc Cain’s proposals either.

Additionally, I am little concerned for his safety…So I’m praying God will keep him safe!!!!!!

I have many mixed feelings….Hence the title Ambivalence….I guess that is why I am neither registered as a democrat or a republican..My voter’s card says no party affiliation…

I TRULY believe that some positive change will come through this president, but MY HOPE will stay fixed and will remain in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is the HOPE that I cling to…

I will be praying for Obama and I hope that he includes Jesus in the “we” part of his “Yes We Can” mantra as he leads this nation.

Please pray for our president!!

Congratulations President-Elect Barack Obama!!!!!

    I agree it was a great day for the USA to elect an African American President I just wish it was a man that shared my values. We are adopting two kids from Haiti and are at the tale end of the process to do either fostering or adoption for our state and we have 4 bio kids.
