This election was special; a barrier was crossed and “America’s new deal” will begin. ++ This momentous occasion “will be seen as a miracle which could happen only in America.” ++ Obama, who “embodies the America of today and tomorrow” arrived at the perfect time. ++ Following an epoch of George Bush “go-it-alone belligerence,” Obama can restore hope and “we can love America again.” ++ The US needs to address the roots of global anti-Americanism, which stem from reasons other than Bush. ++ Obama is well suited to lead in that endeavor.
