The historian in me is thrilled, the citizen not so much.

But I'm trying not to be bitter. It's over, I'm trying to not to be bitter, and I just really, really hope that this doesn't go the way I think it might.

And also, I have been told by Colleen certain members of my family that my bitterness is bringing the party down. And I'd just like to ask Colleen certain members what the hell she thought we were going to do, we stuck an elephant head on you and put you on the corner of Port Rd and Hwy C?

ColleenCertain members are now on the phone with significantly more enthused friends.

I, meanwhile, have consumed significantly more alcohol than is probably healthy and yeah, I'm staying home tomorrow. Yeah.

But I am going to go watch his speech, because I am a historian, and I do realize that this is a milestone.

It doesn't make me any happier about it.

Just so you know.

I am not saying that I voted for the person who won, but I am an American first and at this point in time I do feel that the outcome was the best for our country.
