President-elect Obama

A beautiful revitalization of American democracy.

An honorable concession for McCain.

A beautiful scene in Chicago, a beautiful speech from the President-elect.

Hope, at last, for progressives, pays off.

We voted against militarism, empire, deregulation, deceit. We voted for diplomacy, for friendship, for steadfastness, for honesty, for peace, for multi-lateralism, for multiculturalism, for the planet.

The electorate looks toward a more realistic, more integrated, more worldly, more cooperative future.

Tonight, all things considered, America lived up to its promise.

Tonight, America rejoined the world.

Two days later, and walking down the street today, I got chills just thinking of the Obama family moving into the White House. WOW.
