Smileyface, your comment is not very happy. Why the hostility? McCain supports were upset, give them a break. I am positive that some Obama supporters would have acted classless as well had McCain won. There are people of great character and of poor character on both sides. I was appalled to find Obama supporters in my small city causing public disturbances, trespassing, driving up streets the wrong way, and causing problems in bar rooms with those who are McCain supporters or appathetic. I witnessed all of these things as I was walking downtown to a local politician's campaign party. I'm cool with the celebration but the disreguard for others' well being and the laws is unacceptable. There are bad losers and bad winners but I am glad to say that no not all of those celebrating were bad winners. Thank you to those of you who were classy on both sides!

That rally was incredible, and the people on the streets afterwards were all SO HAPPY! Singing, cheering, hugging strangers- it was unlike anything else I've ever experienced. Honestly, I cry every time I think about it- especially when I see those pictures of Jesse Jackson crying. What an historical moment...

I was at that rally and the excitement and the sheer joy was palpable. It was a once-in-a-lifetime event.

You guys who are surprised about booing, have you ever seen an election? That's pretty normal. Not saying it's right, but it's normal.

Its fantastic that we have finally made a huge step forward in the history books. (Yay Obama) However, now that has won the votes of more people than McCain (the actions of his supporters last night was awful and they should all be ashamed of themselves for acting like they are 10 and not old enough to drink,drive, and vote!) I want our 44th president to do great things. Do things that are great enough to not disappoint the many who support and supported him in this election. (like me, after I got over the fact that Hilary Clinton was not going as far as B and M got in this frenzy)...

Last night - today, is AMAZING. I cried last night watching on TV and this morning again when I woke up and realized it was still "real" :) I think Jesse should have been there to show the progress that's been made. Go Obama!!!

Jesse Jackson looked upset at first glance in the celebration. But I honestly expect him to apologize to Obama for saying those things. No man, no matter the race or situation, should damn someone else publicly because they don't agree with something someone said. That's childish, ignorant, and just plain rude. Oh, and as for the McCain supporters who booed, lets just hope that they decide that a unified nation is more important than some silly little antics they may consider pulling (like disgusting comments, hate crimes, etc). But yea. Last night in the celebrations, this guy bought a whole group of us cookies. I thought it was awesome because he was doing it for complete strangers. I stood in a crowd at the University of Michigan's union, and watched as people from different races, different walks of life, different cultures, and some from different countries cry and celebrate and party last night. It was beautiful. This girl from Germany that I barely know came up and hugged and kissed me because she was so excited. Like we just watched history be made and the whole world is celebrating. Lets just hope a few sour folks won't do something stupid...

[He should of hid his face in shame for the comments he made about Sen. Obama.] Seeing him take in the gravity of it all was enough for me. He should be allowed to celebrate with the rest of us.

McCain supporters did not display emotions of sadness last night. They showed ignorance and an inability to look beyond themselves to the greatness and history of what had just happened. It is fine for them to be disappointed that their candidate, their choice, did not win. But when John McCain mentioned Obama's name and they booed, that was unacceptable. In contrast, when Barack Obama spoke about McCain his supporters cheered. Just goes to show the message that both men and both campaigns put out and I am just so thankful and proud that the positive message prevailed.

Jesse Jackson should not have been there. He should of hid his face in shame for the comments he made about Sen. Obama. I hope he doesn't expect some cabinet position or to have any influence over a man he thinks so lowly of.
