Post-election breakfast banter at Madison diner


MADISON (WKOW) -- Newspapers across the nation shared similar headlines Wednesday morning. 

However, reaction to Barack Obama's historic win is almost as varied as the menu at Madison's Parkway Family Restaurant.

"It's a new opportunity," says Marc Jones.

Jackie Thompson is just as excited about Obama's win.  "We needed a change," she says.

Bert Hart is not certain the change Obama brings is what's best for America.  "I think we needed change, but the two big things for me were the war and illegal immigration. I don't think those will change very much," Hart explains.

This post-election breakfast banter, served with pancakes on the side, is almost as hot as the coffee served at Parkway.
