The difference between Obama and McCain: For 1 thing, Clifford and I noted that McCain and supporters are at the Arizona Biltmore, one of the most posh hotels in Phoenix and a rather small venue in relation to GRANT PARK. I have been to both places and the difference between an elitist and a maverick are shown by their choice of places to celebrate.
Well three hours later and we are celebrating the most amazing event we have seen in years. Can anyone of our generation believe that we have an African/American (half white) man elected President of the United States! Let us never forget how far we have come and that the old older may pass quietly and we come upon a time when color is not as important as some people think it is.
We are so proud to be Americans again. No, we were not proud for the past 8 years and I am not afraid to say it.
