Of all the things I have read and heard today Becker sums it up best for me.
"I don't think it's a big surprise to anyone watching the polls of late, but congratulations are in order to President-Elect Barack Obama. He won a decided victory after almost two years of campaigning. The people of this country have spoken, and I am just glad it was a clear and decisive victory, and this time, there won't be tons of court battles trying to figure out what to do with the hanging chads. I am also encourage by how many people got out and actually voted. It is usually so sad how apathetic people have been in last elections, taking our right to vote for granted and no caring about the system or process that we use to choose our leaders.
I thought John McCain's concession speech was very gracious and of course President Elect Obama's speech was very powerful (as expected... he is such a good speaker! I got chills.). I am glad that all of the campaigning is over, and I hope our leaders can get down to business and deliver on their promises and try to bring about positive change and hopefully economic stimulus, and peace in the Middle East -- God Bless America!"
Have a happy day, fellow Americans......M.E.
