We spent the evening at our parents house (who voted for Reagan, years ago). It was a great dinner with family. The kids were having a good time and my sister was pouring a great bottle of red. Mom had made another great dinner.

We sat down and made a toast to who we all hoped would be our next presidient. As dinner progressed we watched CNN for the latest news and predictions. We watched history unfold. It was awesome.

The broadcast spanned dinner and dessert – but at 8pm it was announced. Our new president – Barack Obama. It was great.

In a way I think we all knew – I think everyone knew. It was time – it is time, time for change.
