Monumental night.

Tonight was a good night for this country.

Because over 100 million Americans went out and voted today. Because John McCain gave a gracious speech in the face of defeat. Because when his supporters booed at the mention of Barack Obama, Senator McCain encouraged them to stop, even though he probably felt a little bit like joining in. Because Barack Obama reminded everyone that his daughters earned a puppy from this campaign, win or lose. Because on Monday, I got to talk to 4th and 5th graders about the importance of voting. Because they were shocked to learn that some adults are allowed to vote but don't. Because both McCain and Obama reminded us that no matter who we voted for, we are one nation and no matter who is in the Oval Office, we are STILL one nation.

And they were both right.
