Congratulations to Barack Obama, the 44th President of The United State of America. I had the privilege of watching the results from Rockefeller Plaza in Mid-town Manhattan. It was absolutely packed to the gills with humanity. Yes, it was overwhelmingly a Democratic and Pro-Obama crowd, but if you were there it seemed like more than that. The word catharsis comes to mind.
Congratulations to John McCain, who ran a strong race and gave a moving and unifying concession speech. He gave me hope that the John McCain that I grew to love and admire 4 years ago is still in there somewhere and will hopefully reemerge as a stalwart of the senate that all Americans can look to for a cool head and an honest opinion. His party did not let him be himself during this election, but now that it’s over, I hope he goes back to answering only to himself. That’s the McCain I loved.
Tonight, my wish was granted. Now lets see if we, the American People, can stand up and answer my prayer.
