A Win for the Ages

No matter where you stood on the presidential race, I think America won.

As a certified (Or is it certifiable?) Republican let me explain.

Whether or not Obama will be a good president remains to be seen. Goodness knows he has a mess on his hands. But... we have come a long way since the evil days of segregation. Slavery and the aftermath of hate and bigotry have long been a wound in our nation’s soul. It hasn't healed yet, but it's truly begun.

Martin Luther King had a dream.

Last night it came true.

Peace, love and prosperity to both the reds and the blues, the blacks and the whites and everything in between.
