My father just called me.
"I wanted to call and say Congratulations." he said.
Completely cought off guard and wondering if he's seen the pictures on my blog or something I replied, "For what?"
"Well you're the first person I knew to openly support Obama, you must be very happy and excited with his win."
"Yes, I am very happy and excited"
My father is not the Obama fan I am and only joined his camp after Clinton excited the race in June. He is a Democrat through and through though. I on the other hand really tried to educate myself and was won early on by Obama (though for a brief moment I was a Biden supporter and was happy to see him join the ticket in August). But I don't know if congratulations are in order.
Not for me anyways.
