What the World Saw Tonight

In 1808, women could not vote, and the ancestors of modern African Americans were slaves. Tonight, 200 years later, an African American man was elected president, and a woman fell only one step short of being vice president.

America is far from perfect, and, as I’ve previously said, in God’s eyes, it enjoys no privileged status above other nations. Nevertheless, tonight was a very, very good night for our country.

Obama’s oratory is always inspiring. But McCain’s grace-filled concession speech – which emphasized the importance of this night to those who feel marginalized – was nothing short of amazing.
