2008 - Congratulations, America has a President-Elect
We have a new president here in the US. He is president-elect Barack Obama. This was a very long presidential race, long by even American standards. We're all exhausted from this race as a country and excited for January 20th, when the new president is inaugurated. It was a good race. John McCain gave a thoughtful and gracious concession speech. Barack Obama gave an inspirational acceptance speech.
My wife, Mo, voted in her first election as a US Citizen. My boys will grow up in a country that values people of all kinds, including ones that look like them. Voter turnout was at historic levels and was organized and peaceful - THAT is a testament to this country and what we stand for.
Now, let's get to work, America.
