So Wednesday morning I went to the West Oakland Library, and another reporter went to Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, and we talked to folks about the election, whether they’d ever thought an African American would be president, and what they thought Obama’s first priorities should be.

Despite the geographic, racial and in some cases, economic differences, most all thought it was a great day for the United States.

We videotaped the interviews, check out some of them here:


The rest will be posted in a couple of days, along with a couple of print interviews that got cut for space in the paper. Stay tuned…

Add your own comments about the election, and how it affected you and what you think comes next for our newest president.
