Obamapalooza, From the Ticketed Cheap Seats

Welcome to the first person. I had my doubts about Obama waaaaaay back when, but once he became the Dem Nom, I couldn't have supported him any more strongly. This election marked the first time I actually donated to a candidate, and it marked the first time my girlfriend actually prepared an argument to try and sway her Conservative parents in Missouri. And it's the first election I ever cried at when the President Elect was actually announced.

Thank you America, for finally coming to your senses and getting it right this time.
