"Where there is breath, hope."

Barack Obama
44'th President of the United States


I jusr watched President-elect Obama accept his election tonight in Chicago's Grant Park where heads were bloodied during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. I like the dignity of our new President's speech - his focus on getting straight to work to face the many challenges facing our nation, just as I liked the dignity of John McCain's concession speech. Both men seem ready to put the partisan fight behind them and get to work - a model for all of us.
