Thank you America! November 5, 2008Posted by dorigo in news, personal, politics.

I have a busy day today – meetings, analysis approvals, code that won’t work, fits that won’t converge.
But this morning, upon hearing the NEWS, I realize there is really little today in my agenda or outside of it that can change my unconditioned happiness and my mood. Thank you America! That is, thanks to all of you who understood, who overcome fear, who believed change is possible. Thank you to all of you who feel ashamed for what eight of the worst years in your history have brought to all of us. And thank you also to those of you who are not ashamed by the Iraq war, by the economic fiascos, by the vacationing president, by the increase in poverty and the increase in selfishness of american society, but still decided it was time to send home the present government and their friends, and try something else.
In a few months Barack Obama will take office, and he may end up disappointing our hopes. That is in the equation. But the vote of tonight brings optimism around the globe.
