Where were you when Barack Obama claimed victory and what were you doing?
Unfortunately I was fast asleep but at 5:30am, my husband switched on the light and shouted “He’s done it. The man has won!! I smiled briefly and nodded off back to sleep thinking I was still in a dream A few hours later, I woke up to see my husband still glued to the TV, and that’s when I realised it was for real. Obama, an African American, had won. I reminded my husband that he would be late for work. He told me about the interview with Gore Vidal and Oprah.
I’m now watching the TV, and at the same time checking my watch as I will have to leave for work but I wished I had the energy to stay up all night. But never mind, as I wrote else where on my blog, it is a great day. Let us know what you were up to when it was declared that Obama had won the Presidency.
