"Can you believe it?!  We are sooooo excited that Obama won.  It is an historic moment and I feel privileged to have been there in the crowd to listen to his speech.  If you had the chance to see or read his speech, it was amazing  (I attached a copy) .  So wonderful to finally have a respectable, smart, intellectual President.  We are so proud of America.  This gives us all new hope that things can be different and better.  We saw news reports showing scenes in Paris  and all over and people had Obama shirts on and were cheering at the bar when he won.  We should've sent you some Obama shirts!
 
In Chicago, it was CRAZY exciting.  People everywhere in the streets and in the parks, honking their car horns and screaming with joy all night long.  Tom  was   in D.C.  and said people surrounded the white house and were chanting "Obama"--this from a country that usually doesn't even vote.  He said when the news announced Obama won, the cars just stopped in the middle of the streets everywhere and people got out and started yelling and screaming and the cabs were all honking their horns.  Traffic completely shut down for a while because everyone was celebrating.  It is an exciting time...something to hopefully erase the memory of George W.  He is SO unpopular right now.
 
Anyways, we had a great time and it was so exciting.  We're glad the world celebrated with us and there will be tough times ahead for us and for the new President, but at last, we finally have some real hope.  Good times."
