Four More Years – a wonderful day

I went to bed in Johannesburg last night, GMT +2, super anxious about the results of the election, but also relieved to not have to subject myself to live vote counting into the wee hours of the night like my friends in Washington, DC and Montreal.

This morning I woke up to learn that Obama was ahead in the polls and, by the time I had purchased my coffee, that he had won. I am happy, comforted, excited and optimistic.  Four more years of President Obama and four more years of First Lady Michelle Obama. The other leap forward: Maryland and Maine voted for marriage equality!

Well played, America.
