I normally don't like to bring up politics here, but this is a moment worthy of an exception.
History was made last night when Barack Obama won the 2008 US presidential election in a landslide victory. While I disagree with John McCain's use of negative campaign tactics over the past several months, I congratulate and applaud him for his sincere and graceful concession speech. He nailed it, expressing a caring and appropriate message of unity that you can tell came from his heart.
Barack Obama's victory speech, delivered to a crowd extending far into the night, was yet another one for the record books. Barack Obama is arguably the best communicator ever to be elected US president. He is an example of the tremendous power a strong, balanced, and confident person has to inspire and lead others. He is, without doubt, a role model to us all.
It is a very exciting time to be an American.
