Happy democracy, America

Now, let’s get to work. McCain’s was his best speech of the entire campaign, that tone throughout the campaign would have made it closer.

President-Elect Obama (feels good to write that) gave a speech that underscores the serious challenges before us. It’s bracing to hear he is beginning transition immediately. It will be important that every step is measured and deliberated and, while that represents a refreshing change from the past eight years, only the election night parties are over. The real work begins now.
