    Oh, you only want the ones with tears of joy?
    I'm sure there were others that cried for different reasons

    FWIW, I did neither

    I didn't cry, but I couldn't wipe the smile off my face for hours. I'm still smiling!

    Jesse Jackson was bawling his head off, though...

    I did, a little bit. During both McCain's concession speech (because I thought it was very sweet and also very courageous) and during and right before Obama's acceptance speech (especially when they were talking about the fulfillment of MLK's dream).

    I didn't cry tears of joy. I did cry at his speech, though. He was majestical at points and some of the stuff he said was powerful.

    I didn't cry at McCain, I saw right through him.

    I teared up watching the news break and the reaction across the country.

    when CNN and ABC called the election, i was dumbfounded...part of me refused to believe what was happening for fear of some sort of disappointment or letdown. i was afraid they would make a mistake, that it was all too good to be true.

    and then i heard people in the street outside my house celebrating and cheering...and i cried, hard. i think that's when it hit me.

    i cried quite a few times during Obama's acceptance speech as well. overall, i had a very emotional night. :eek:

    I cried when they announced him over 270 and they showed the world's reaction, and I teared up again when Obama was speaking.

    I can tear up if I think about how proud I am of my country right now.

    Nope. I awoke this morning and saw the news, but by the time I had chance to really take in the result the Prop 8 stuff was going badly which has tarnished the day somewhat. So right now it's all a bit Meh!

    Sorry.

    I cried during McCain's speech and Obama's speech. If you thought watching it on TV was moving and emotional, imagine being there. Having the sound waves from the towers of speakers passing thru your body during Obama's speech. OMG it was amazing. Words can not describe.

    I was like "Meh". But then I got excited when Prop 8 passed. Perhaps America has hope after all.

    I give it 8, maybe 12, years before Prop 8 gets swept away by another amendment.

    Because we know gays getting marriage is a top-shelf issue bringing America down. :rolleyes:

    I'm convinced you're trolling at this point.

    Just another reason the Republican party 's power has broken down. Republicans need to come to grips with the realities of America and stop being the party of hating those not like them, mostly white men, rural and out of touch with what most Americans want. There's a reason that over the past 2 elections, they have lost the presidency, a dozen or more Senate seats and close to 60 House seats.

    I was once a Republican but don't see them being able to reclaim me. I can sooner see myself register as a Democrat.

    I got the chills (still do) as soon as it was announced. I'll probably remember the words forever, "it is now 11 o'clock EST and the polls in the West have now close we are ready to project CA to Barack Obama, and we can project the next president of the United States to be Barack Obama."

    Then I gave my mom a hug and my eyes got wattery :eek: But I mean I wasn't cryyyingg :p Every time I see the images of people crying I get teary eyed. It's just such a great moment right now. I still haven't taken it all in.



    And boo on Prop 8. Talk about a buzz kill. :mad:

    I cried during both.
    I should have recorded it.

    People like YOU are one of the many things wrong with this country.
    We could be focusing on so much more important issues right now.
    This wouldn't even be an issue if people could do what they as wanted to and gays, lesbians, and bisexuals were left alone.:mad:
