Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go. — Oscar Wilde
America’s allies were also openly jubilant about the election:
“Welcome back America!” — Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo

“[It’s] time to get back to building bridges, not walls.” — London Mayor Sadiq Khan
“Congratulations Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Our two countries are close friends, partners and allies. We share a relationship that’s unique on the world stage. I’m really looking forward to working together and building on that with you both.” — Canadian PM Justin Trudeau
“Heartiest congratulations @KamalaHarris!” — Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi
“How proud that a woman, Afro, Indian, Jamaican, great professional and extraordinary leader, became the Vice Presidency of the United States for the first time! With every woman who wins, we all win!” — Claudia Lopez, mayor of Bogotá, Colombia
I finally get to sleep nights again.
Makes me cry every time. The head of the Delaware Democratic Committee lived the first 22 years of his life on this block.
After I moved off the block I lived on in Wilmington when I was 19, Joe and Jill now live on the block. I feel so involved in all this; especially Erik’ DDC. He and I first met when he came up to my house on his four wheeler in 2008 and couldn’t believe I had an Obama sign in my window, this the reddest county in New York State. I just feel so involved. Now we all need to push for the Georgia special election January 5th.
