A New President Has Been Elected And History Has Been Made
Congrats to Senator Barack Obama on being elected the first African-American to serve as President.
As a lifelong Republican, I applaud him on his victory over a good man and great American, Senator John McCain.
I hope Barack can keep us safe as the GOP has done in the days since 9/11, keep our military well supplied, supported and victorious (not with withdrawal). I also hope he catches Osama Bin Ladin as he said he would do. I hope he leads out of the current recession and not further into one. I also hope, most importantly, keeps his promise he has been preaching about change and unity.
This is a HISTORIC moment in American history and in all honesty, didn't think this would come for at least another 20 years or so. And I say that because there is still racial tension in this country and I am glad to see with this election, America has made a significant step in erasing some of those stereotypes.
As Senator McCain said, "...(Obama) has achieved a "great thing" for himself and the country with his historic victory" and "...(McCain) urged his supporters to put aside partisan differences and work to get "the country moving again."
Speaking from outside the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, McCain told his supporters: "It's natural tonight to feel some disappointment. Though we fell short, the failure is mine, not yours." What a great man.
He also mentioned that Governor Sarah Palin was one of the best campaigners he's ever seen. I personally agree and I look forward to her in the future.
Let's get this country going again and get America back to what she's been doing for over 230 plus years....lead the world and kick ass!!!
As stated in the US Constitution, "...all men are created equal..." and today it was proven that we are.
