A New Hope.

Ok, it's by a rather tight margin, but still. We got rid of our coservative, Bush-like government tonight. So there is still some hope for Slovenia that could become a really weird country if the conservatives managed to squeeze in another mandate. Election night was quite exciting and "my" team of journalists did a fantastic job - mitjablazic also took his part of it. So, it's 1.10am and I am about to leave my office... And have a(nother) beer.

I am a happy man tonight.

So am I.... I think a sigh of relief just blew over the country tonight. Especially among journalists. We have been treated like the ultimate evil.

So it's all good, my friend, all good. I think that - career wise - I have just ended two of the toughest year in my life so far.

Wish me luck!

Congratulations!

I hope I can say the same thing here on November 5th - both at the presidential level, and here in California, where we're also voting on a referendum to continue to allow gay marriage.

I'm cautiously optimistic about both.

I surely hope you will manage to do what we did. I am really relieved. Last four years under this gov't really, really weren't pleasant and another four years would probably turn us into - I hope you don't mind me saying that - another land of the "free".

The idea is just downright spooky.

Thanks, A! We need that! And I need some "normality" at work to return to my little everyday existence.

Take care, ok?

Congratulations! :)
You can always rely on an election night to raise your adrenaline level - I know it from experience.
It seems that journalists are treated like the ultimate evil by every government here in Bulgaria.
I don't trust any of the current political parties here, I'll probably have to chose "the least evil" in the next election. I'm so disappointed...but it's a long story, and the memories are still painful.
Good luck for Slovenia!

And picking the least evil is probably what happened here as well.

And thanks, we WILL need some luck!
