A Great Day for America
Any reader of this blog will know that my politics, informed largely by the principles of Catholic social teaching, were not fully represented by the campaign of Barack Obama. But I do believe that Obama’s campaign and victory beautifully represents the best ideals of America, which I also embrace. I was impressed by how gracefully John McCain said this in his concession speech. I was deeply moved by Obama’s victory speech, how powerfully he gave voice to the long struggle in America to bring those ideals to life and his sober articulation of our hope before a very challenging future.
Today, it’s enough to fly the flag. Tomorrow, we get to work.
