Thread Name: BS: Obama Wins!!!
Subject: RE: BS: Obama Wins!!!
When I got home this afternoon about an hour ago, I heard a news report on the election result, but didn't hear who won. I was asking the radio WHO? WHO?? I've been listening to news radio ever since, savouring the result.
Now I'm listening to President Obama's speech. Congratulations to him & to all the 'Catters & others who helped in his campaign. Over the past few weeks reporters based in the US have kept us up to date on the campaign.
Last night we heard from volunteers who traveled to Ohio to help get voters out. One was an Australian who has been working in New York for about 6 years & even tho he can't vote, has been helping on the campaign. He said there many other non-citizens helping, some had flown in from other countries.
