She was never undecided; She always was an Obama supporter. Her fake crying doesn’t impress me. Today’s show was sickening with them being so sticky sweet to each other. It made me want to puke.

I commend Sherri for the courage to look at both candidates carefully before making a decision. The new President is a win for ALL Americans, regardless of color or creed. God bless America and our new President and his beautiful family!

Anonymous must have been a McCain supporter! GET A LIFE! Obama is for ALL people. Take heed to what McCain said in his speech and GET ON BOARD! HATER!

I didn’t watch the show this morning, but usually do…I’m proud of Sherrifor letting her emotions get the best of her! It’s okay to be emotional! I was last night and still am today!!! We as americans can finally truly believe that you can be whatever you want to be in this country regardless of who you are! GOBAMA!!!!!

I have watched the View pretty much throughout this election. And I feel like Sherry interpreted to many “Elizabeths” out there what this election means to many African American people. It would upset me that Elizabeth would minimize the meaning of Obama possibly winning to African American people throughout the show. And Sherry verbalizing and showing emotion was completely appropriate…and showed a clear picture of the hope that Obama has implemented in everyone. He was and is the right candidate…and was voted for on his character…like the dream that Martin Luther King had wished.

ok while her emotional display was touching… after all this is a huge event for our country and especially for people who have seen so many positive changes in our nation over the last 5 - 10 decades, and I’m sure that her emotion came from her heart… With that said, let’s not be so blind as to think that she was ever seriously considering any candidate other than Obama. I’m mean really… she is not that good of an actress…

Sherri’s tears made me want to slap her. She says she was undecided because she felt Sarah Palin was going to support special needs children, she knew good and damn well Sarah Palin said that to play on the emotions of people who had special needs children (which is low), just like Mc Cain who used Sarah Palin to play on the emotions of women. All you women who fell for that hook, line and sinker have set women back 100 years and should be ashamed of yourselves. We ask for equal rights, equal pay and want respect but we do just the opposite in this election because we are afraid of having a black man in office. Shame on you.

To think that Sherri only reason for voting McCain/Palin was kind of lame! There were far too many issues to consider a candidate other than SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN! That’s like saying, oh, I’m gonna vote for McCain cause he’s a war hero…WTF??? What about all the factors at hand, are we really that shallow people? (hint: “Anonymous”)…..I do on the otherhand connect with her emotions, but not with her poor reasons of first choice of candidacy, I’M GLAD SHE CHANGED HER VOTE and she will be rewarded for that.

Salima - Even though I know I’m going to regret the answer, I have to ask… Did you mean that Sherrie will personally be rewarded for her vote? If so, how will she be rewarded? Or did you mean that she along with the rest of the country will be rewarded for voting Obama into the White House?

Futhermore, I have to ask if you think that part of that reward is the fact that Russia is already challenging us militarily and the fact that Iran has now challenged Obama to remove sanctions that were put in place to help keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons????

Haven’t you noticed? That’s the tenor of this site… make as many jabs and insults against others who don’t have the same opinions as you.

Yes, even when posts are in the form of a what can/should a person do about a particular situation, instead of getting suggestions and advise, people get criticized and insulted.

It’s so nice how women on this site support each other… isn’t it???

MsTeeBird November 7, 2008, 9:32 AM

Why would anyone say that her emotions were fake? She spoke with the sincerity of her heart. And I too was feeling like I did not want to vote but as I began to realize too what our people have faced, now my children or nieces and nephews can say with passion ” when I grow up I want to be president” and not have that as just a dream but a goal. You would not understand unless you were a person of color. People of color were not allowed to drink from the same water fountain less alone grace the greatest position in our American country. And, his ( OBAMA) election has infuriated so many racist supremacists that they are taking it out on innocent Black Americans by torching their cars and other heinous acts. I believe that if a woman had won, we’d get the same reactions from so many because woman are ridiculed and told that they can only do “so much” and this is a “man’s world”. Women were beaten and ridiculed and treated horribly for trying to liberate us and let their voice be heard instead of being thought of as a “house wife”. Sherry, i agree with your sentiments, girl. I understand.

“Fool Me Once”….I am not worried about Obama handling the situations that you mentioned, he will have to clean up alot of the residue that 8yrs of Bush left behind….you think Iran don’t have nuclear weapons already, they don’t need Obama to remove any sanctions…as for being “rewarded” LET’S LOOK AT THE OBVIOUS FACTS…Obama won, proved himself to be the best of the best and as a “reward” for all who voted him in FINALLY in their lifetime feel like an “American”…FINALLY someone who fits the image of what America is…a MELTING POT….I for one never felt like a citizen of USA until now….this country is a melting pot of so many from every part of the world, so our reward is someone that fits what we all are….”AMERICANS”….people of color are no longer the minority here, THAT’S OUR REWARD! A FEELING OF BEING AN AMERICAN, now I can say it proudly, when I was so ashamed of it for 8yrs. Did you know that W. Bush’s dad (former pres) is furious about how his son ran this country? You will NEVER find the two of them side by side on a stage, he has ruin the “Bush” name and legacy. That’s who we should of feared when he was running for presidency…I have no fear or worries about how Obama will handle our crisis, THE MAN WAS CONGRATULATED BY 9 WORLD LEADERS!!! My (OUR) “REWARD” is someone to be proud of who came from nothing! My REWARD is a new found inspiration, my REWARD is knowing that I can make a difference as a middle class American, my REWARD is this historic event given to me to pass down to my children and grandchildren, my REWARD is a President that I get to have that understands me!
