    As a child I am sure all she can think about in this picture is the promised dog.

    It has been broadcast by the media, that future President Obama was not keen regarding exposure of his family during one interview. These feelings of privacy and protection are understandable. Hopefully the media will allow these two young ladies to grow up out of the limelight.

    Experiencing much hostility here in the South because of McCain losing the election. Attend a predominantly white church, and, as a mixed race individual, it is very uncomfortable for me. Many are extremely angry. Hear people as I exit services. Ashamed to admit this. We call ourselves Christians, but it seems as though we can't let go of old prejudices, etc. Yet, happy to endure it. See President Elect Obama as intelligent, hard working, patriotic and willing to serve at a terrible time in our country. Disagree with him on abortion, but the only thing I disagree with him on. Have stopped attending Bible study at my church. Too uncomfortable for me. The hostility is very evident. Yet, I do not plan to change churches yet. This is the South!

    What a wonderful night Tuesday was for this country, what a wonderful Friday as well! At last we have a President and Vice President that have passion for all of the people in the United States of America.

    People keep referring to this being historic because we have elected the first African American as President, and it is – but I see it a different way. We have just elected a brilliant man as President and a brilliant man as Vice President. At last, we have come together and made the correct choice – we have elected two men we can trust and honor.

    And won't it be wonderful to watch two little girls grow up in the White House? (With their puppies, naturally)

    I was impressed with Obamas victory speach. It is refreshing to hear any political figure recognize all different type of people and races. I was particularly impressed that he mention specifically "native americans", as you rarely hear any recognition from anyone that this race even exists any longer. Hope this is a sign for positive change for EVERYONE.

    I believe that the "Hairless Mexican" dog mentioned in reference to a potential canine option for the Obama girls, is actually not from Mexico. Rather it is a breed from Peru, known locally as "Perro Chino".

    great show tonight.

    Do you know if Obama and "company" were watching CNN, "the number 1 news source" for the election results?

    I know I was Jeff

    "Change" is the word.

    The world has change extremly. It is respectfully up lifting to know that the history books will write about young African American sisters growing up in the Nations Capitol. It's really a beautiful thing.

    God Bless the Obama Family,
