No doubt the conversation during breakfast or coffee Wednesday morning will turn to election results and what's next for the country.

Folks at the Peppermill Restaurant were reading the headlines and details on the wins and losses overnight.

It was a decisive win by Obama. His campaign slogan "Forward,” with not a lot of specifics on what his new agenda will be. Most, at least, are hoping for best.

John Colburn of Rochester said, “What I’m disappointed in, is that we have a business man who could fix things and we had a president with just a blank check in his hand. Now we need both people working together to make this country work.”

Carol Hinds of Greece said, “I would want the money spent here to help America. We have a big problem with crime, drugs, people are very unhappy and we all need to work together, all of us. Republicans, democrats, the whole population, we all need to work together to help each other out.”

Dusan Vujanovic of Greece said, “God bless America always, God bless my home flag and always I love it. I love this country. It’s beautiful freedom, whatever you can do.”

The President says he is returning to the White House more determined and inspired than ever.
