Just a quick note to say this:

I am so proud of my country right now, and proud to participate in this historic election.

Other people are going to say all sorts of wonderful things about this, our first African-American president.

I wish Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X and Rosa Parks were alive to see this day. I hope they are cheering in heaven, with all the martyrs of the lynch mobs and all the plantation slaves and everyone who came to this great nation in chains.
