I'm in NC. Not called for days, but we finally did it, too. YEAH!!!

I live in the piedmont (center) part of the state which is more urban and progressive than the east and west part. Our Piedmont area always votes very differently than the west and east part of the state.

We are an odd state. We've had a Democratic state legislature and governor for YEARS, but obviously, as a state, usually are carried by the east and west into the red column in the presidential elections. BUT NOT THIS TIME, BY GOD!!! IT'S A NEW DAY!

I know Longmont very very well. I went to Niwot High School. I lived there from about 1975 till I graduated in 1980. It might not be Colorado's most progressive town, especially considering it's so close to Boulder, but it's definitely gotten better.

I'm all for putting the Conservative Team in 3rd place!!! That is where they belong!!

Welcome to the team.

I was so exhausted after two weeks of full time volunteering for the blue side that at 7:00 on election night I was snuggled in my bed. When Ohio went blue I turned over and slept the most peaceful sleep in 8 years.

Florida AND my county went blue!!!

welcome! It was an amazing ride - the campaign AND election night. Watching those states go blue, I started crying - there needs to be an emoticon with tears and a smile of joy!!

Anyway, I live in Copenhagen and CNN called it for Obama at 5am and he spoke in Grant Park at 6. My heart is STILL full and happily I've quit weeping.

Since you called yourself CARBOHOLIC, I figure there must be a good reason for that. You might read my sparkpage and we can talk if there's anything I can help with.

Welcome welcome welcome. It's fine with me to have a goal to take the place from the conservatives - a little good competition never hurt anyone! :-)

I'm in redneck Longmont, but we had a huge amount of support for Obama here. It was almost surreal as I've lived here since 1972. In the early 1900's Longmont was the seat of the Klan in Colorado and blacks were not allowed in town after dark. Never thought I'd live to see this day!

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

Hi. My name is Ellen and I'm from Colorado where we finally went blue this election. After 8 depressing years, I can truly smile again. I found this site when looking at the category leaders. It would be nice to put the conservatives in 3rd place. Probably not a very Obama-like statement.
