Eh

I know the entire world is abuzz today with the results of the Presidential election. And that the blogosphere is all a twitter with what this will mean for our country. That people are saying that we’ve made history today, for better or worse.

Eh.

I gotta tell you I don’t really see what the big deal is here, people. We do this every four years. Two politicians spend bazillions of dollars badmouthing each other and telling the country how they’re going to be for change. Then we pick one. It’s the same thing every single time. The names changed, but other than that it wasn’t really very different.

And some people are celebrating in the streets, and some people are bemoaning how the world is going to end, but I don’t really think there will be all that much that changes. At least not in my little world. I’ll just keep on doing the same thing I’ve always done, no matter if there’s a Republican or Democrat in the Oval Office.

So there you go, in case you were wondering about what I was feeling on this “historic day” (ABC news’ words, not mine). The answer is Eh. With a shrug.

Tomorrow we’ll go back to the really important stuff, like my fear of jell-o and other people’s basketball shorts.

Really? I'm so interested to see what's going to happen now... What changes will be made, and how it will effect everything. And I'm not even and American. :)

Well, it is pretty historic in that a black man was voted into the highest office of the land even though just 50-60 years ago they were denied basic civil rights...

I don't think anything much is going to CHANGE, hopefully it won't become worse. I can't even vote, so it was no big deal to me. That being said, it is hard to deny the election of a black guy into the oval office seeing that how blacks had no rights 50-60 yrs ago.

If you haven't seen this already, you might enjoy this.

I can appreciate the historic note of the first black man in office, but I don't see how the color of his skin affects his ability to lead the country. For better or worse, I think he's just like every other guy elected to the Presidency.

But then again, politics have never held any interest to me, so maybe I'm missing what all the hubbub is about.
