If Obama wins (which he won't) I will support America I will also go out and buy some stock as once the shareholders see he has won there will be sell sell sell and everything will be dirt cheap as Obama is bad for business. Your dreaming if you think Obama/Biden will win between the "Bradley" effect and PUMA McCain/Palin will win. Polls are just fodder for the media they mean little till election day.

Can conservatives read the American language? I didn't say that I've never been proud of my country. I take deep pride in many aspects of this country, including its Constitution, as it has been amended and reconstructed, and the literature and culture of America.

But I feel this country has been in a conservative counter-reaction against the Civil Rights movement and the progressive advances of the 1960s since 1968, the year I experienced as a young man of 15, the assassinations of RFK and MLK Jr.

I've been voting since 1972, and I've never voted with strong enthusiasm for any presidential candidate. That will change on November 4th. The racism of this country, as reflected in the success of the GOP Southern strategy, has dampened my pride in this country, and if Obama is elected, I feel we are in for a significant realignment in American politics, with Obama a transformational figure.

I will feel REALLY proud of my country if Obama gets elected for the first time in my adult life. Note the adjective REALLY.

I have not been proud to be governed by presidents who have appealed to anti-black racial prejudice and homophobia and white resentment to win elections. The foreign policy of this country has also not made me really proud, and we have too many people in prison and too many people who are impoverish and in need of health care for me to feel REALLY proud about this country.

I'll accept the decision of my fellow citizens and support the President and this country. however i have my reservations about his talent for leadership, he'll have his opportunity to prove me wrong. If he can back it up I'll vote for him in 2012. But if he doesn't i will proudly rock my McCain/Palin bumper sticker for 2012, just to say I told ya so. I can already predict with a crystal ball what his excuse will be if the economy doesn't get better or he creates less jobs than under the first 4 years of Bush. Either way, I'm paying close attention to the Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal. He may be the first Louisiana governor since Hewy P Long to have a real shot at the White House.

I agree.

If Congress chooses to put country first, I think there will be great potential.

Unfortunately, I'm not optimistic about that.

I will feel no different about the country.

I think he will be severely constrained in what he is able to do. Too bad.

I will be glad that the adults will be back in charge...

"I will feel really proud of America for the first time in my adult life if Obama wins."

That's a shame. There have been so many things to be proud of America over the last 36 years. How could anybody be so simple/single-minded?

I was not proud of America or its people when GW Bush was elected in 2000 and 2004.

I will feel really proud of America for the first time in my adult life if Obama wins...and really, really proud if the victory is a resounding victory or landslide.

Were you proud of America and it's people when they elected GWB twice?

I will mostly feel disappointed. I won't panic or think the sky is falling. This country is bigger than any one man. I will be more concerned with my safety and that of my family. I'll hope he suceeds for the good of the Country, even though I don't think he will. I'll pray that the media keeps an eye on him even though I pretty sure they won't. I'll look forward to bashing his every mistake and wait with baited breath for every scandal.

If Obama wins the election on November 4th in a resounding victory or landslide, how will you feel about America and the American people?

If you are anti-Obama and pro-America, will you still feel proud of your country and its people who elected him?
