Well, the impossible, the inconceivable, the unbelievable has happened. Barack Obama has been elected the 44th President of the United States of America. I watched his speech in a bar, surrounded by ecstatic, unbelieving people, most of us brimming with tears. Between his Lincoln quotes and his thanking of the generation that "rejected the myth of it's own apathy", I have not had many happier moments than that. Never have I been more proud to be an American.
Take a moment and think about what we have done, and where we are going. Just incredible.
