Looks like we're getting President Obama.
I'm not optimistic, but I say let's give him a chance. I'm not going to indulge in a right-wing "Obama Derangement Syndrome"... not yet anyway.
I'm sure I'll have plenty of criticisms on specific policy decisions, but I'll hold my fire until I've got something concrete to shoot at.
For now, congratulations to Barack Obama and his supporters. I'm not sure what you've gotten us in to, but let's face the future as a united country and see how things go.
(Yes, this post was very hard for me to write.)
John McCain just gave an excellent concession speech. "Classy", as everyone will say. He is a genuine hero, and a man of honor and integrity. He waged an honest campaign and frequently took the high road, which probably cost him votes in the end.
Senator McCain, thank you for your many years of service to our country. I hope you have the passion for many more.
