Exciting as hell!

#### democrattotheend

(11,607 posts)It's exciting to see the first woman be nominated by our party, even if I didn't support her in the primaries. I can imagine this moment is really exciting for her supporters, especially those who supported her and had their hearts broken 8 years ago.

I really hope my fellow Bernie supporters don't act up and ruin it for you.

(81,993 posts)What an astounding day. "...I think we have to sit and think about that for a minute..." - Eugene Robinson on with Rachel Maddow and Brian Williams. What an gobsmacking day. "And how far the nation has come in that time. It's just extraordinary." - Eugene Robinson again.

(81,993 posts)We're watching history being made! HERstory!

I'm barely breathing. My heart's in my throat. I can't believe what I'm finally witnessing. I'm 63 this year. I can't believe my eyes! I can't believe my ears! My heart can't believe it either! All I can think of is my daughter.

I'm crying like an infant.

#### MSMITH33156

(879 posts)that they are going through the process of voting instead of Sanders not putting his name in and ceding his delegates to Hillary. It's a fantastic opportunity for his supporters to be acknowledged, and also a historic moment for her. Hopefully this will be cathartic for everyone involved.

#### Haveadream
