NBC announced that Barack Obama is the new president of The United States of America just about ten minutes ago. I've still got chills running up and down my spine. I am very pleased by and proud of the news, and America should be, too.

I was surprised to see how disrespectful the crowd at McCain's speech was, particularly when comparing them to the hopeful crowd for Obama's speech, a crowd that cheered even at the mention of the opponent. McCain didn't even seem in control of his own crowd... or perhaps "mob" is a better word.

I'm quite pleased at the results and am glad that we can finally have a president whom we can be proud of. One who shows that hope is more powerful than fear. One who shows that intelligence and eloquence are admirable. One who shows that change has to come from all levels.

I wish that people would stop trashing McCain. Whether you believe in his polical views or not, he is still a war hero. He survived the "Hanoi Hilton", which is one of the worst place that a prisoner could be captured during the Vietnam War. The communist Vietnamese are very cruel and evil. I know, because my family and escaped from there. I was only 5 yrs. old at the time, but I still remember hearing gun shots as we made our escape in a small boat.

Given what I have to go through to be an American citizen, I hold my citizenship proudly and close to my heart. I paid attention in history class and have to say that there have been many great presidents in the history of the United States of America. Mike Hucklebee said it best on his show on the Fox News Channel--in giving support to the president elect. I just pray to God that he and the democratic senate are not going to push more socialist agendas (socialism is just a step away from communism--good in theory, but never in practice).

What makes me sick is that some people in this election voted for or against Obama solely on the basis of the man's skin color. Race shouldn't be an issue, period.
