No. Obama won.
A few minutes after Obama was declared the winner, we heard the sound of screeching tires outside our house -- sounded like a pickup peeling out. My wife joked that it was probably someone stealing our Obama yard sign. We went to the window to check on it and sure enough, it was gone.
So.....to the thief......I got to see my candidate win the election. I got to see thousands of people cheering and celebrating all over the world. I got to go to sleep last night knowing that this country will be in good hands come January and that we will soon be on the way to repairing a lot of damage. I got to see the first African-American president-elect in our nation's history. Dr. Martin Luther King would be so proud if he was alive today.
And you? You got a yard sign. I have a hunch I'm feeling a bit more gratified this morning than you are.
