Obama - The 44th President
I did want to say Congratulations to Obama. Although I don't agree with all his politics, I do believe him to be an honorable man and a good leader. One thing that struck me in this campaign was that I really did believe that both candidates were good people. I disagreed with parts of both parties platform, but in the end, I didn't hate either candidate. This was a welcome relief when compared to someone like George Bush who I just couldn't believe ever rose to the highest office in the land. Even in defeat, I thought John McCain was pretty gracious.
I think Obama will be a good President. I am happy to witness this watershed moment in American History. Let there be no mistake, this is a truly historic moment that I wasn't sure would happen any time soon. A black man will be President of the United States. A minority has made a meteoric rise against some pretty big odds. It fills me with some pride that we as a nation have gotten to a point where this is even possible. I just hope he treats this opportunity for what it really is and rewards the American people for the faith they have bestowed upon him.
