Well, by now you know that Obama won. Symptomatic of the entire election was John McCain's concession speech. He was decent. He was a gentleman. He was honorable. The crowd booed him and shouted obscenities. Until those extremists are marginalized -- and I'm pretty sure McCain is horrified by them -- we have a lot of work to do. Still, for the first time in quite a while, I want to be back in the US, celebrating with Americans. And for the first time in an even longer time, I'm am very proud of my country. I'm not used to that.
I really want to be able to celebrate this victory right now, but I'm at work and there's a leaving do tonight. Perhaps this weekend.
