Last night in Santa Cruz, California, I celebrated Barack Obama's win with jubilant friends and strangers who had gathered on the main street downtown.
Brooke, Saskia, Theresa, Luke, Lindsay, Lisa and Melinda and Matt - so wonderful to see you all!
I am deeply relieved about the election outcome and feel optimistic about the leadership of this new Democratic president.
My friend in France, whom I met in the Brazilian Amazon wrote me today:
CONGRATULATIONS FOR AMERICAN PEOPLE !
We are very happy for you, for all world. Youpi! And now, very much work for Barack Obama.
THANK YOU for voting in favor of Barack Obama!
See you later!
