Yes! Yes! YES!!!!!!!

 



YES, I know that it is slightly premature, however after four years of absolute insanity, I am taking and running with it. 

So here you go - per Wikipedia just now, since altered to remove President-elect reference, but which I trust will be returned shortly once the final counts are confirmed:


Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. (/ˈbaɪdən/ BY-dən; born November 20, 1942) is an American politician who is the President-elect of the United States, scheduled to assume office on January 20, 2021. He previously served as the 47th vice president of the United States in the Obama administration from 2009 to 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as United States Senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009. 


Updated Saturday, November 7 - It's official! Joe Biden is has been elected, and will become our newest President in a couple of months. Until then, hang in there as I'm sure it's going to be a bumpy ride . . . 


Updated Sunday, November 8 - Last night's Biden/Harris win moment was an amazing, uplifting event. VP-elect Kamala Harris' beautiful speech set the tone for the night, and when she made reference to representing the future possibilities for little girls, and for people of color, I wept on behalf of my own beautiful granddaughters who are of mixed ethnicity, one half of which is brown. Their future now looks so much brighter than it did just one month ago. And President-elect Biden's speech was beyond magnificent. 

However, and this is a 'however' that I sincerely hope is not lost on Democrats - while this election was a resounding rejection of Donald Trump, it was clearly not a rejection of the Republican party per the seats they picked up in the Assembly, and the apparent lack of a Blue Wave in the Senate. I sincerely hope that the significance of that is not lost on the Democrats as they come together to determine how to move forward. At the top of that list of discussion points should be 'Compromise,' bolded and in caps.

 

Yes! Yes! YES!!!!!!!
