Based on the content of his character

What a momentous occasion... America, even the world, is going through a transformation.

The country which re-elected George Bush in 2004 has shown amazing flexibility in electing an agent of change into the White House.

Three hundred thirty-eight electoral college votes. This man truely has the "mandate" which Bush claimed to have in 2004. The people of America have spoken. "We want change."

It is a testament to the quality of Obama's leadership that he was able to mobilize the American people in such a way as to get out his message and overcome great odds to win this election.

I have hope that the man displaying these qualities can help this struggling country and its people rise to the possibilities we all know they have.

Earlier this evening I heard something which astounded me, and I hope I got that right. The "spark" for the beginning of the National Association for the Advancement for Colored People (NAACP) was a race riot in Springfield, IL in 1908 - the beginning spot of Barack Obama's political career. In 2009 - the year Obama will be sworn into the office of the President of the United States - will be the 100 year anniversary of the official founding of the NAACP.

Congratulations Barack Obama.
Congratulations America.

History seems to have so many wonderful coincidences....

2009 as the 100th anniversary of the NAACP establishment is beautiful.
