ABSTRACT
An interview with U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is presented. When asked about her thoughts on Election Day 2008, Lee replies that she did not want U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's victory to be taken away from them, and did not want a repeat of the 2000 and 2004 elections. She notes that despite her support for Senator Hillary Clinton during the primary, she believes that President-elect Obama's victory was meant to be. Lee claims that under Obama's leadership, the country will get people-based results.
