Congratulations Mr President

I hope that the people of America can come together to support our new president and all the challenges he faces. It's time to put all this negativity behind us. No matter which party you chose to vote for. It's now time to move forward.

I respect John McCain and all that he's given for this country. I hope that he truly means what he said in his very gracious concession speech. I hope he steps up to offer his help to our new president. Maybe they'll be able to put aside their differences and lead by that example. Then maybe we'll start to see some positive change.

Because our country is in crisis. There's a lot of work to be done. And all this division needs to stop. We all need to be united in our efforts to keep this great nation a place that we can be proud of.

"It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of
red states and blue states.
We are, and always will be,
the United States of America."
~President Elect Barack Obama November 4, 2008

If I was American I would have voted for him.
He has a huge work load in front of him and I think he will do well.

Krista,
I loved this post- you put things so much better than I could/did. I have been impressed with the Cabinet members that he has picked so far.
by the way, you saw oreo and then typed oreo into my comments and then all I could think about was O-R-E-Os. I was forced to raid my daughter's trick or treat bag for her only tiny packet of mini-oreos to quiet the howling beast of oreo need. I was found out the next morning and had to suffer much questioning and agonizing "fessing up". Now that bag is hidden and I have no idea where. That's okay, she was out of oreos and butterfingers anyway.....
