Dagger was rendered blind in the first issue, and her struggles to deal with this new disability were a major theme of the series. Austin did extensive research at the American Foundation for the Blind so he could give an authentic depiction of the physical and psychological impacts of going blind and the coping techniques used by blind people.
The pair continued to make numerous appearances as guest stars in titles such as Runaways and the Spider-Man Maximum Carnage story arc, as well as starring in their own adventures in anthology titles like Marvel Comics Presents. Cloak made a solo appearance in issues of the miniseries House of M , as a member of an underground human resistance movement. It was uncertain if Dagger also existed in the altered reality of House of M as there were no mentions of her during that storyline.
They have appeared in various other Marvel Universes, one of which included a storyline where Cloak was killed. It was announced at the San Diego Comic Con that the team would be reappearing once again in their own 5-part mini-series by writer Valerie D'Orazio , with pencils by Irene Flores and colors by Emily Warren. This crossover presented them with a chance "to have their reputations exonerated and their records sealed [if they join the Dark X-Men]," Matt Fraction explained in an interview with Marvel.
Tyrone is a year-old boy from Boston , Massachusetts with a debilitating stutter and ran away to New York City when his speech impediment prevented him from stopping his friend from being shot by the police, who mistakenly believed he had just robbed a store. Tandy is a year-old girl from a privileged upbringing born in Shaker Heights, Ohio who ran away because her multi-millionaire supermodel mother was too busy with her career and social life to spend time with her daughter. When they meet, Tyrone considers stealing Tandy's purse, but before he can, a thief steals it and Tyrone retrieves it for her.
Afterwards, they have dinner and quickly become friends. The two teens are soon forcibly delivered to criminal chemist Simon Marshall developing a new synthetic heroin for Silvermane and the Maggia , testing it on runaway teens with fatal results. Johnson and Bowen somehow survive injections of the drug, and they flee. During their escape, the drug turns them into superpowered beings. Trying to hide his newly shadowy appearance in a makeshift cloak, Tyrone absorbs Marshall's thugs into his darkness while Tandy strikes them down with daggers of light. During Cloak and Dagger's travels around the world, Dagger is briefly reunited with her father, Nathan Tyler , who has become a type of guru in India.

He develops an ability to manipulate his personal "light" like Tandy, but uses it as a form of control over others to increase his own power, seemingly killing Ty when he interferes with his plans. Cloak and Dagger oppose him and he flings himself into Cloak's portal. Later it is revealed that during this time, D'Spayre had been manipulating these events from behind the scenes. Cloak and Dagger became vigilantes and hunted and killed Simon Marshall and his drug-dealing henchmen responsible for activating their powers.
They first encountered Spider-Man during these events. When their activities became too damaging for the illegal drug trade, some dealers kidnapped members of the New Mutants and tried to control them by injecting them with a drug similar to that which gave the duo their powers. For a time, they lost their powers to the heroes Sunspot and Wolfsbane but they cooperated in retrieving them when it was learned the others were not handling it well. Kingpin wanted Dagger to help heal his wife, but Dagger refused to help him.
Dagger was later possessed by Night, and battled X-Factor , and lost her sight temporarily. Cloak and Dagger played a small part in the Infinity Gauntlet saga. When Thanos used the power of the Infinity Gauntlet to sacrifice half of the population of the universe to Death, Dagger was among the superheroes that vanished. Cloak answered the summons of Adam Warlock to join a task force of the remaining superheroes to fight Thanos.
The two tended to live in churches, supported by friends and priests. Cloak has run away many times, not understanding that Dagger is fully willing to use her light power to satisfy his darkness. While on an international case, Tandy performed with Eurocirque as Lady Light and shared a romance with a supposed stowaway on a drug boat. Dagger was supposedly killed by Shriek Carnage's "wife" while saving an injured Spider-Man, but was later revealed to be severely wounded and recuperating within Cloak's shroud, and was the key instrument in breaking up the Carnage 'family'.
After Tyrone leaves Tandy's side, he is no longer able to control his hunger and consumes any and every lawbreaker, no matter how small the offense. While searching for him in churches she meets the Black Widow who she teams up with to prevent a church from being robbed. Daredevil later appears and both assist him on a mission he received from the Punisher. Dagger becomes a member of the now-defunct " Marvel Knights " team, partnering up with many different heroes, including Shang-Chi , Luke Cage , Moon Knight and Daredevil.
Natasha brings Tandy to the guidance of Dr. Strange in the hopes of finding a crazed Tyrone. The Marvel Knights and Dr. Strange locate and battle an enhanced and deranged Cloak, during which most of the group are absorbed into his cape. Strange reveals that Cloak has become possessed by Nightmare. Tandy manages to overpower and absorb Ty's Cloak powers, freeing everyone from his cape.
Though at this point he was a normal human, Ty managed to defeat the robot. Cloak and Dagger make their return in Runaways , in which Tyrone appears repowered and stable. Gertrude Yorkes was able to halt Dagger's light attacks with her dinosaur Old Lace, as Dagger's light had no effect on animals, and Molly Hayes managed to pull Cloak's cloak from his body, severing his connection to the Darkforce Dimension. This caused a ceasefire, during which time Gertrude and Molly explained to Cloak and Dagger that the LAPD were actually corrupt and under the control of the Runaways' supervillain parents, the Pride.
Cloak managed to reconnect to his cloak and rescue the Runaways he had absorbed, and he and Dagger both promised to return to New York and bring back the Avengers to stop the Pride and rescue the Runaways. However, the traitor in the Runaways—Alex—instead contacted the LAPD, which had the Pride erase Tandy's and Ty's actual memories of the group, thus preventing them from helping the Runaways. Mantz, stalked and attacked Dagger, leaving her hospitalized. After a fight with the New Avengers , Cloak regained his memories and requested the Runaways' assistance in clearing his name, as he had been framed for attacking Dagger.
Cloak appealed to the fact that they all shared bonds in being runaways and explains the reasons he and Dagger never helped them as planned. They agreed to help, and successfully helped Cloak apprehend his impostor, the delusional orderly, Reginald Mantz, who believed that he and Tandy were in a relationship.
Cloak and Dagger are revealed to be members of Captain America 's faction of super heroes who oppose the Superhuman Registration Act during the " Civil War " storyline. Cloak is shot by S. It turns out to be a trap set by Iron Man waiting with the pro-registration faction.
History was made on 4th November ; and I thank God for being here. I know this isn't relevant to his job as president, but what a beautiful family they are! It's been a very long time since we had such a beautiful family representing this country, probably not since Kennedy.
A great day for American and the rest of the world but I wish American will learn to lose their idea of sharing wealth with the poorest as a great evil. The greed espoused by the right has nothing in common with the values of liberty, freedom and democracy. As for socialism, it is not the same as being a child rapist. Jesus Christ was the great socialist the world has ever seen.
Republicans I hope that one day you will learn to become better people and stop believing in the right of very rich and amoral white men to oppress and exploit others and call that christianity and patriotism. Last night was one of the most amazing nights of my life. I have never felt more inspired or more alive or more hopeful about America. I'm so tired of feeling ashamed and this election just ushered in my key to finally feeling proud.
Go America and go Americans! Okay, to all the pissed off, bitter and otherwise assinine comments I have had the privilege to read today after all free speech is your inalienable right I have a few very simple questions: Is your objection to Barack Obama based on your disagreement with his leadership abilities?
Because all know what a stellar job "W" has done yes its sarcasm The idea of anyone not caucasian in the White House? I welcome the comments rude, crude and personalized though they may be I have the utmost faith some of you will not disappoint What?? Picture number 12 seems to reflect the conflicting emotions and the momentous weight of this historic day. The uncertainty of change lady on the left , the joy lady on the right and the hope for a better future girl in the centre.
As a Canadian, this was more existing than the last few times we've elected empty headed conservatives to dive our own country deeper into the hole, just like the US is emerging from the same hole. Whats sad is the amount of pathetic turds asking for free welfare, mortgages paid and all that crap Rove told you to say if Obama won. He has a huge job ahead of him and it seems a country half full of losers ready to burn the country to the ground to prove a point; that liberal thinking is wrong.
Well ladies I hope you FAIL, fail big, world leaders will want to work with him, will want to see him succeed and you will just come off as traitors to your own country and today I feel more of an American than you will ever deserve to be. Yelling from the top of your trailer home with a shotgun in your hand is not the American dream, today the world hopes for your country to resurrect itself from the sewer you have dragged it into.
And btw, this feature from Boston. I see some major issues, the fact is that it will be quite difficult to pull forward some of those promisses, at least during his first legislation that is if there are any. Not as much as for the raw economic issues, but for the corporate and economic interests. I feel quite sure that between the high elite of the US there are many guys that don't even whant to think about many of the things he talks about. Though it can sound like picked out of a movie, I just hope not to see an other JFK if he realy tries to pull forward his promisses in a serius way, hope not.
Obama has already made a tremendous positive impact on our nations attitude. He is clearly capable of accomplishing goals he sets out, after all, he is the first African American president elected and he did so by running a first class campaign. I'm not so naive to think everything will be sunny meadows now but am absolutely thrilled to tears to have a Obama as our president and excited for a change in America's bogus reputation. This is a pivotal moment in our nation's history and goes beyond the presidency bid. What many seem to forget is that Obama is half African American and half Caucasian.
He truly represents a majority of the American people, and his win on Nov. Now that the gov't is back on track and in good hands, it's fun and funny to listen to the Republican talking heads bloviate! Wow, okay, now that I see Michelle's dress up close, it is quite beautiful not a fan of the overly casual-looking cardigan though Her designer should have known that it was a bad choice for a dress to be seen on television and from a distance, though, because from a distance you can't see the subtle gradient that the red--black creates I am so deeply proud of my country.
As I watched the results last night with dear friends, I am not ashamed to say that tears ran down my cheeks. These photographs are most certainly "keepers. I don't get it. What does everybody see in Obama besides empty "change" slogans and speeches? I'm not complaining that he won, because I thought McCain was a poor candidate and ran a terrible campaign. I also thought Bush spent recklessly during his tenure and let government grow out of control.
But who thinks they really know Obama? Can anyone name one legislative accomplishment of his? What plan does he have that is going to take our country out of insolvency? This is "dumb as we want to be" politics.

I'm hoping for the best, but expect business as usual in Washington DC. Congratulations Obama to be the next President of the United States of America , surely he is capable of the post and duty. The world is watching him and the U. S , may he lead the nation for a bright and prosperous future. To people who don't like obama. You have no other option than to give him a chance as your president.
Esperamos uma nova era um novo tempo. I am an Indian presently on a visit to US on business and I must say I am extremely fortunate to be here in these great times. I have seen some fantastic politics, healthy debates, mind blowing commentary, and outstanding audiences.
Even though I am far removed from the realities of your politics I am truly proud for what you Americans have demonstrated in this election - you have truly shown what a great nation you are and the lofty dreams that any one of us can realise. You' re the best choice! These photos make me remember that when I was young back in the 60's I absolutely believed that someday a rock star would be president. After looking at these great photos don't you agree that he's now the world's biggest rock star?
I didn't vote for Obama because I strongly feel government should do much less and he of course wants it to do more and more, but in my mind there was never any question that Obama would win. And I'm glad he has because he will lift everybody's spirits in a way the McCain could not have. Even if we end up with a swing further to the left than people expect, more American spirit will make up for it.
I mean this very sincerely, he's our president, he's got the stage As for the comments, I'm just in awe of how much bitterness there is in people. Get over yourselves, people, the majority has spoken. Maybe if you weren't so miserable and full of venom your lives would be happier. Your own happiness does NOT depend on who's president, but of course some of you will never figure that out. If not for being perpetually miserable, you wouldn't know what else to be. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. The person who was the comment is a hater. Why not put yourself out of your own misery? The majority of the country has spoken buddy!
Better get used to it. Im speachless,Very glad to see that we now have a president who see the thangs that we see, and feel the Pain that we feel,Who sees the struggle that lies ahead of all of Us,that we must Defeat,,And we Will, God has our blessings!!!!!!!! Why on earth should they get they're taxes lowered when they're the ones who can actually afford taxes. For one thing, i am getting my taxes cut and im glad.
Also, responding to comment Change" we do need change in this country because.. But McCain is Bush all over again, and we cannot have that any longer. Of course he is an american, he was born here in america like any other american. This is absolutely my favorite blog. I knew it wouldn't disappoint today. I look at this blog through tears in my eyes, overwhelmed with excitement and hope for the first time in 8 years. Thank you so much. Plus, I wouldn't have ran with him anyway.
I don't think I need to explain. Seeing the young people outside the White House, cheering peacefully, almost moved me to tears. They came out, voted, and took the country back. It's their country now. I couldn't be prouder to be an American. If the man who gave that speech had been the man running for President, this election would have been a lot closer.
But more importantly, it will be felt. The entire Nordeast bar I was in sat silent as he spoke. It will become a staple among high school speech students for decades to come for sure. But the physical impact those words had was immediate. But it was his recognition of the challenges ahead that I took to heart. How do we turn those words into action? To be blunt, listening to Obama last night made me want to be a better person. There are traits in our new President I want to emulate, that I want to teach to my nephews: It can come out in little ways.
Use your turn signal. Look a stranger in the eye and smile. You share that in common. Give up your seat to an older person. And when you multiply them by millions, it suddenly becomes an everyday reality. We begin to see what is good about this country. And it generates hope. Hope that draws possibility within reach. Hope that will be turned into action and solutions. No longer can we be number one by default.
James E. Michalik (Author of Superhero Surtain)
We have to earn it. Just like many generations in the past have. Let them reverberate in your own lives years from now. Carry an ember of that fire you felt to warm your heart when things grow cold. This is really a historical moment for human history and civilizatiion. All the world is watching with special attention what is going on in The USA. And probably in some special place Mr. Luther King is concentrated in this news The best set of pictures this blog has seen After the win here in Seattle, people poured into the streets in celebration.
A street party lasted until 3 in the morning. Thousands of people hugging, screaming in joy, men and women crying, strangers giving each other high fives. Police just stood there and smiled. It was absolutely incredible. I have never felt so strongly for my country than I did last night. The world is a better place today than it was a few days ago because of you. Thank you for choosing this man as your president.
You've sent a clear message to the rest of the world: Americans believe in democracy and change. All my respect to you. I stopped reading comments after I read that. My jaw just dropped and my heart breaks to think there are people out there that think like this. I can only assume you've never given birth to a very sick baby with special needs, and then blown through your older child's college savings to pay for "your share" of the insurance costs.
When my mentally retarted son grows up to be a man, his health and life have as much value as any privlieged CEO's. And if you think that's "not fair", then I pray you never have a sick child, or a loved one who gets cancer. You're just so awful to think that; the right to a healthy life should not be a "privilege". Honestly, I hate the P. What kind of political experience is that? Yes, maybe it shows your tough and stubborn and refuse to quit, but it does not mean you know how to run a country. McCain is a great man, but he just is not the man to run our country, especially right now His policies will continue this country down the dreadful path that Bush has led us down.
Yes, Obama may not have a lot of experience, but the fact that he was able to motivate and inspire so many people is a truly unique quality one that McCain clearly does not have despite his storied past. Look at the numbers. The election was NOT close. Its not like McCain was cheated.
He lost because Americans want change and McCain was not offereing that. Obama is a man that immediately demands your respect and attention. Not just from Americans, but the entire world. People of all nationalities sat and watched this election and are now rejoicing because they know the America they have grown to hate has new life. Its not realistic to think drastic change will come quickly. If you do, then you clearly do not understand how the government works.
Maybe not in January, maybe not even in , but down the road Obama will make great strides to take America in a new direction. Millions of Americans are motivated to turn things around because of the results of this election and that would never had happened with a McCain presidency. The most important thing now is for Obama to reach across the aisle, something he has been known to do, so I have no doubts it will happen. The past eight years have left our country a mess. People from both parties will agree with that.
Obama is the only person in this election that stood out as having the promise and potential to change that. America has made its decision. Lastly, anyone out there making idiotic comments like "Obama is gonna make me pay more taxes" is just plain selfish. If that's the first thing on your list of concerns then you clearly do not care about our country. I would like to say how happy I am for President Barack Obama and also for our great country,its so nice to see the breakthrough of racism to be gone it our country and to see a man as special asPresident Obama to take the office as our leader,we have proven to the world that the United States of America has spoken and we want CHANGE.
May God bless President Obama and his family and give him the strength to restore our country and set the standard fo world peace. America is America, republican president or democratic president. Some people act like it's only your America when your people are in charge. Obama and the democratic party now have near total control of the senate off by 4 seats and total control of the house and now the Presidency. I state this now with hope that somehow things will get better. Fix the economy 2. Good luck, and if you fail. I will be there to laugh, and laugh hard. I'm Australian and watched yesterday's our time proceedings and resulting acceptance speech in awe.
Congratulations America, you got it right this time, what an inspiring leader. Did you check out the shades? And the dramatic shots in the rain? Damn, we have the coolest President in the world. Why couldn't it have been Colin Powell? A much better black leader!
THis guy will be the death of freedom to America as we know it. I voted for McCain. The majority voted for Obama. Let us ALL unite and get behind this man and make our suffering country great once again. I pray for his success and his safety. I hope in four years that we can say that he was the best president in history. One who can actually give an intelligent and eloquent public speech, full of hope for this great country of ours and for a better world.
One who can unite a nation of different people, of different races, religions, ideals and economic levels. Now that the battle between the Republicrats and Democans is over, do yourself a favor - go back and look at Ron Paul's platform. Don't just go by memory from the smear stories you heard before the primaries. Both parties are two sides of the same coin. More government, more spending, more "welfare to the world" Beautiful photos of our President-Elect!
I listened and watched his acceptance speech. That's the face and expression of a man who truly believes in this country and knows he has a great task ahead of him. Submission to the Authorities: The authorities that exist have been established by God. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing.
He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. Why - is it something that you worked for, and finally achieved? It's like the people who say they're "proud" to be an American. Unless an immigrant decides to become an American citizen, and does it, it's not something to be "proud" of.

But I was born here, to American parents, so it's not as though it was something that I accomplished and so feel I have a right to be proud of. On the other hand - I'm very, very proud of what my fellow Americans and I did yesterday, in electing Mr. Obama to be our next president. I also love and appreciate all the wonderful comments here from people of different countries.
To the citizens of America, Thank you. As an Australian, I am elated and relieved at your choice of President. Your country over the last eight years has lost the respect and trust of many and I hope that with this change, comes renewed respect, hope and peace for not only America, but the world. But serious, I am so so happy that my candidate won. To be honest, I still like John McCain even after all trhat due to some of his moderate stances, particularly Nuclear.
Seriously, us Democrats still have to applaud McCain for trying his darndest. To both side of the anger I say this: As an American I saw a very close race I'm speaking of the popular vote. I don't understand when it became a bad thing to be successful in this country I always pray the day after the election, that the right choices are made for our country, and the world by the President of the United States of America.
My side lost, but that doesn't mean that Obama is going to forget about us. You heard what he said "To all of you Americans who didn't vote for me I think Obama will do an outstanding job.
Mary America: First Girl President of the United States
I think McCain would have done an outstanding job. However, I finally feel like Obama is going to make the decision to actually represent our country's values as a whole rather than picking sides of some bi-partisan issues and doing whatever they want. I hope the cahnge is the right kind of change and I hope that I still have a country to have hope in. For everyone clamoring for socialized medicine, consider these facts: In in the US, there were , family doctors. There are approximately ,, people residing in the US today. And you think it's hard to get an appointment when your doctor has patients?
And send any Fannies like Rep. I am proud to be an American again! I am a former New Yorker who is glad that Florida is a blue state. Our new President Obama is smart, inspiring, competent and cool. He and his family are gorgeous. I am determined to be a better citizen and help get this nation back on the right track -- working to improve our environment and educational system - by volunteering in my community. Let us all make a decision to work together, promote peace and celebrate our diversity!
He has much work ahead of him There now maybe hope still for the beautiful world in which we all share. I never been more prouder to be an american! God bless him and his beauitful family. And to those around the world thank you for your kind words and I apologize for all the crap the last administration did to this country and the world.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with Mr. President other than he has only has about 4 years experience with national politics. Hopefully he will learn quickly. If you follow Obama's career then you know greed won! McCain's loyalty to country, and party did not serve him well, the old man got smoked by a wide margin, the war heroes" didn't even come close in points. I wonder if theres any reflection in Mccain life, maybe he shouldn't have gungho in Hanoi, loyalty is a vain concept for this selfish country.
Thank American people not god. I can not express the amount of pride that I felt when they announced that we had elected Barack Obama as our new president. This overwhelming joy came from the depths of my soul and filled my entire being. I knew on the day of November 5th, that we as Americans had spoken and more importantly we had been heard. President, may you reign with wisdom and grace, with integrity and tolerance and be a shining example of how we as people can and will co-exist with our differences yet similarities, our strengths yet our weaknesses, our victories as well as our defeats.
I am happy to be me; an American!!!!!!! As I listen to the man, and watch his speech over and over, great Americans come to mind. People who transformed the ideology and the future of our country for the better. I see this in Barak Obama, and honestly, if you can not understand what he is talking about, and can not see the substance in this man, then the problem in you.
He is a visionary, he transcends politics, he gives hope to everyone in this country, and he is the embodiment of what America stands for. It doesn't matter what the color of your skin is, but the content of your character. He is the embodiment of Dr. Kings vision, and why I am so proud to be an American today. This victory will undoubtedly help to bridge racial barriers globally.
I believe that we will see a lot more mixed marriages. Great moment for America and spin off lessons to be learnt by the 'world'. Not an easy task. He will need the prayers and support of all. They said you're not invited eh. Border Security are checking necks for acute redness If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.
It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different; that their voice could be that difference.
It's the answer that led those who have been told for so long by so many to be cynical, and fearful, and doubtful of what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day. I haven't been this proud of the United States since Nov. I am very, very proud of my country and extremely proud of our next president. I am just so happy and so hopeful. Though i was not one of those, i am impressed with people who voted for the man and not by virtue of his color.
I really wish people stop bashing republicans and whites. Now we will see what he will do. I can't even bring myself to read the rest. The photos are beautiful though. Its all said and done. I really just think a lot of people who are not happy about the outcome, are upset, because they don't want to admit to them being wrong. Give this man a chance before you bash him This is the first time, I have ever voted, and Im The first time I have ever been interested in politics.
The first time I actually watch these people speak, without turning the television. This will also be the first time, that when they break through televsion programs, for the President Obama to speak, that I will listen. Its not because hes black, and so am I. At first I could have cared less, but the vibe that this man and his family gives is unexplainable If you feel nothing you have a hateful soul that you carry, and may God bless you.
This is a wonderful, historical moment! The world needs someone like Obama who doesn't try to divide people-- he is someone who goes beyond color of skin, beyond hatred, beyond geography, beyond all these stupid little lines-- he's someone who can bridge communities. Yes, it's a change, and one of the changes is that it's in everyone's interest to be constructive for the future, because as it's been proven already, being destructive isn't going to help.
For the past 8 years I've been afraid to say I'm American in other countries, but now Thanks for sharing these for those of us who don't have access to U. The full weight of this has yet to hit me. I am sitting hear rocking my baby girl to sleep thinking you can really be what every you work to be in this country. Our soon to be president didn't have things handed to him in his life and he had to do three times better than his competition to get this job. Now it is up to us all to become inspired by his life and make this world better, not just the USA the whole world. I am going to do it by spending 30 more minutes a day preparing my lessons as to better inspire my students.
What are you going to do we have no excuse, not that we did before, but now there is evidence, not just ideas. The president can't really do a lot on his or hopefully one day her own. No, I'm not disappointed because he's black, stupid. I'm just sure that he, like all the others, cannot fulfill the mountain of campaign promises he made. All of you crazies who are saying terrible things about the American people or talking about LAUGHING at all the failures you expect from the next administration should be ashamed.
I am a true independent. I voted for McCain and I disagree with many almost all of Obama's policies. However, I have high hopes for Obama. I'm not the only one who gets to choose the President and neither are you. The people of the United States chose this great man and I have more faith in the decisions of the American people than any other group on earth. This is a victory for all of us.
Finally, we are all living in a nation where people young and old of every race go out and place their votes. Is this not what we have been hoping for in every election? People to fulfill their civic duties. This man truly deserves to be President after the incredible numbers of people who went out to vote.
Not to mention the horrible white supremicists have finally been overcome. We are no longer above electing a black man to a high office, the highest one in the world in fact. We are the greatest country in the world and higher taxes, universal health care, and so on are not going to change that. To the bitter, angry folks posting on this blog - I don't hate you, because you are my family, friends, and co-workers too. Let's work together as best we can, and make it better for everybody!
The world is watching! You had your chance, and the past 8 years shows what you've done with it. Greed, excess, war, bigotry. It is time for a change, and if you gotta cough up an extra 2 or 3 thousand a YEAR if you're making over k, excuse me if I can't find tears to shed for you. We need a healthcare safety net for all Americans. We are extremely wealthy as a nation, and there is no reason an accidental sickness should remove one of our fellow citizens from the productive ranks of society due to lack of insurance.
This will benefit all of us, how anyone can fail to see that is truly saddening. You have showcased the best in democracy, meritocracy and inclusiveness. India has a long way to go what with petty politicians playing dirty polical games to appease their respective vote banks. But Obama's victory allows even us Indians to dream a bit in these cynical times. We the people for the people, great photo's, All ours prayers, and blessing go's to God and him along on this great day in America , a very historical moment for us and our new President Mr.
Obama, well done, well done. However, if that should not come to pass, I hope all of you with your "We Did It" buttons and stickers will still be displaying them when the question is asked: Who allowed this mess? I am not Obama supporter neither McCain. I hope Obama can be a good role model to his fellow black americans. I hope he doesn't turn this country into what his brothers did to the many neighborhoods they inherited and turned into a garbage heap ghetto.

Scott brought me the Kindle edition and I am so excited to read it again! I recommend this book to everyone of every age!
