The election itself excites me too - the record turn-out, especially among younger voters. The shift of power/momentum to a younger, more diverse, and more progressive America. A new kind of campaigning that refused to stoop to mud-slinging, that maintained integrity and a steady hand, and that relied on the people for funding, rather than on big corporate lobbyists and other wealthy special interests groups. The landslide victory for Democrats, which I believe is necessary in order to start fixing so much of the damage caused by the Bush Administration over the past 8 years.
Anyhow, I'd love to talk more about all these aspects and more, but I just don't have the time and can't seem to pull my thoughts together coherently enough anyway.
