Today, was Obama's day! He won a landslide victory in a hard fought race, and he gave an elegant and inspiring victory speech. I expected nothing less.
But in defeat, John McCain earned back my respect; respect he had lost by the pettiness of his campaign, the fear mongering and the name calling in the last days of the race. His grace in deafeat was equally inspiring for me. In particular, the following words, among others inspired me:
"I won't spend a moment of history regretting what might have been."
Hats off to the comeback kid... At least he came back to respectability!
