I would just like to take a few minutes and gloat a little bit. Yes after defending my candidate over and over again for the past few months, I've finally come up on top! I don't think I've ever been this happy.
Tonight I sat in a room full of BYU students rooting for Obama. Yes, they do exist. We shouted with every blue state! We played a prediction game and ate a cake with Obama's face on it!
But never in my life have I been happier than when CNN counted down and we all stood up, held our breaths, and felt change in the air. The screen changed into just a shot of Obama's face, and a caption "Obama, elected President of the United States of America" and the whole room erupted. With tearing streaming down my cheeks, I hugged everyone around me, screaming at the top of my lungs!
Never before have I have felt more alive as I ran through the Wilkenson Center, along with hundreds of other students screaming at the top of our lungs "YES WE CAN! OBAMA!!" over and over again. Or the silent victory as we marched through the library with our Obama shirts and posters!
All those dirty looks and rude names mean nothing now! Nothing can ruin my happiness!
