I'm just so proud of my country tonight
I can't help but to take a moment, a bit off topic for this blog, to celebrate the triumph of our democracy today in electing Barack Obama as the next President of the United States. The cheering about 11 PM could be heard on the streets near my home in Tribeca, as the networks announced their projections . I'm sure they were heard across the country and beyond. I've never seen a leader before with the ability to inspire so many people to renew their faith in the ideals and promise of America. Congratulations to President-Elect Obama and to the American people on this historic evening.
