Congratulations Deval Patrick!!

It is almost 2:00 am and I'm really sleepy right now, so I hope I don't realize that this post is completey incoherent tomorrow morning.

Anyway, I was at the Hynes Convention Center to celebrate with all the Patrick supporters. It was truly amazing. I am really happy and proud to have been a volunteer for his campaign and a Delegate for him at the convention. This night was the culmination of a lot of hopes and dreams.

we got back the house...maybe the senate too!


P.S It's only a little after 1:00 am here, but staying up this late has been worth it!

Hey, congratulations. Did you win convincingly.

samuru999 - We won it all!!!

gunfighter - I agree, even with the rain, it was warm and just beautiful today. Things are looking up!

suttonhoo - What a night!

wheresmymind - I was shocked it didn't pass! Also, I would have thought #3 would pass too. I guess ya never know.

the thinking black man - Thank you! It's so exciting. I have faith in the American voters again!

something from me - It was a decisive win all around for the Democrats!

And for Bush? I'm tired. It's too long of a list and I just want to think about the joy of the win for now.

nance - We're blue all over! Sometimes life is really good!

When I woke up this morning and saw in the Times that Patrick had won I immediately thought of you, and felt immediately hopeful, and grateful for people like you, whose enthusiasm drove this election. I also wondered what kind of hangover you'd have today. Whatever it is, it's worth it.
