Today, the people of the United States elected a man of color to be President. This is something that was not seen as possible, even 20 to 30 years ago.
Even though I had policy differences with Barack Obama and voted for John McCain, I look forward to the next four years and will work to support him. He is our President.
Don’t get me wrong, where needed, I will question decisions I don’t agree with and always express my opinion. That is something that all Americans should do.
But I will always respect the final decision. He is the President and deserves that respect.
I am extremely disappointed in some of the Republicans this evening. During John McCain’s concession speech, he was congratulating Barack Obama and many of them booed. That is just plain wrong!
During a Presidential campaign, we always have a civil fight for the Presidency. But once that fight is over, we all come together for the good of the country.
Those who supported John McCain must heed his words and work to bring about good will and come together.
This is a truly historic evening. Our country will only get better for it.
