National Pride

A good friend of mine texted me last night, "So this is what fucking pride in your country feels like! Woohoo!" I could not have said it better. We have ALL taken part in a monumental period in American history. But we cannot sit idly as this is only the start of change and there is a long road filled with many more decisions to be made. It takes more than a president to build a great nation.

A song dedication to a nation of immigrants (and native Americans).

MP3: Neil Diamond - America (ysi)

I urge all Americans -- (applause) -- I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together, to find the necessary compromises, to bridge our differences, and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited."

Senator John McCain
