President Elect Obama Sybolizes Hope In 2009
Today can be no day without recognizing Barack Obama for his historic triumph. Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, you must recognize that President Elect Obama symbolizes the American Dream that anything is possible. Was the election result a surprise? Certainly not. Ask Republican insiders when they knew the fight was lost. Most will volunteer that as soon as McCain's stopped campaigning during the financial crisis. Saving the economy was never going to be a strong point for Senator McCain who'd said earlier it was not his strong suit. His bid to get in front with a dramatic departure from the campaign trail was a huge miscalculation. This did nothing to quash concerns about his judgment and leadership abilities. (Ticking off David Letterman was a huge mistake when Oprah was already in the Obama camp!) Defeat was never guaranteed. But from the sound of his excellent concession speech, he took a long time preparing for it.
