Did you hear the speeches last night? John McCain was as gracious and honorable in defeat as it's possible to be. Barack Obama showed himself to be a master orator capable of rising to a historical moment.
I've heard the cliche all my life that, in this country, anyone can grow up to be anything if he or she has the vision to see the path forward and the persistence to stay on it. We now see that to be more true than in the past. Only in America indeed.
Thanks, Dad, for the phone call tonight.
