A New Era of Unity and Renewed Pride in America

America has spoken, and I am proud to say it spoke in as definitive and uniting a tone as the one Senator John McCain used in his gracious concession speech. Our dreams may exceed President-Elect Barack Obama's grasp. But the hope he has brought led to one of the most awe-inspiring scenes I have ever witnessed. The sea of diverse and beautiful faces celebrating at Grant Park last night was moving in its overwhelming emotional power. Let us hope this bodes well for the future of our country, and its place in the world.
