Congratulations, President Obama!

barack

I’ve never been so emotionally invested in an election in my life. We’ve all worked hard for this, and here it is. Thank you, America!

(And an exceptional concession speech from John McCain. It was a hard-fought battle, and all parties should be commended for their efforts. In light of the values of our new country (!), let’s put aside our differences and work together to make this country the wonderful place we know it can be.)

UPDATE: I woke up this morning and Obama is still the President-Elect. We have more winners as of 7:20 a.m. (we think, hope, etc., with 98% of precincts reporting)! Congratulations:

  • Senator Max Baucus
  • Governor Brian Schweitzer and Lt. Governor John Bohlinger
  • Secretary of State Linda McCulloch
  • Attorney General Steve Bullock
  • State Auditor Monica Lindeen
  • Superintendent Denise Juneau
  • Supreme Court Justice Patricia Cotter
  • Representative Mike Jopek
  • Representative Cheryl Steenson (won by 22 votes!)
  • Chief Justice Mike McGrath

It’s been a hard race – and for those of you who didn’t prevail this time around: Don’t give up the ship!
