    Obama wins re-election: Your reaction

    More from omekongo

    Victory has never been more frustrating


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     omekongo says the re-election of Obama signifies that the country has truly changed. 'Just 8 years ago, a candidate could LOSE an election based on his stance on being for gay marriage. That and other issues like immigration just shows that the demographics have changed significantly,' he says. 'That and other issues like immigration just shows that the demographics have changed significantly. Different people are involved in the political process and everyone now feels this political process belongs to them too.'
    - Jamescia, CNN iReport producer

    While I'm happy Obama won, I am dismayed at the way our electoral system works to beat each candidate down until there's nothing left. I hope going forward that we'll all do our part to really come together to the best of our ability. Lastly, over $6 billion was spent on this election during a time when people are losing homes and jobs. This is atrocious in my eyes. The election is over, I hope the citizens now show our politicians how to lead. It all starts with me. Will it start with you too?
