Congratulations

To America. Not just for electing what appears to be the better candidate. Also for successfully getting through another peaceful transition of power some of us can only envy.

Congratulations also for setting an example for other societies still struggling with racial identity issues.

Here's hoping that this new presidency will bring all things successful for Americans and for America's role in the world.

It is the beginning of a new era for my country. Last night I watched with tears history being made. His acceptance speech was so moving. I must say that McCain's concession speech was very dignified and gracious. I am terribly proud to be an American today, one who voted for a great person, one who lives in a country that has peaceful elections, a country that will hopefully be united once again. No matter what people in other countries may think or say of us, I believe that our example of peaceful transitions of power are remarkable. Many people who supported McCain here are disappointed and unhappy, scared even, of what the future will bring. But there will be no riots, no bombings, no killings over this. It is a good day to be American.

Congratulations to all Americans who voted in the first place and didn't just ignore, and yes many many many congratulations for electing a non-white president, the better candidate as L stated. Yes it is a good day to be an American, may he confirm all your hopes, and all the world's hopes, and weed out the last government's fingers off places they shouldn't have put it in the first place :)

Congratulations

yeah we are all excited, all the world! Not just because Obama has african origins so it proves that there is no racism. But through his thoughts and ideas he seems peacful person and looking for change. His words are indeed moving. I dont know what he will exactly do for Americans, or what kind of change he means in his speaches.

But definitely no doubt I feel better towards the americans that they have chose this person to be their president. They came over the fact that he is from African origins, that he had islamic chapter in his life, all the rumors that were surrounding him.

So yes I am happy as well.
