History is Made
I actually felt a bit cheated that I wasn't in the United States on the day we elected our first-ever minority candidate to the office of President. It was a historic day in my country, and I rather wish I had been there to soak it all in, although it's been fascinating to experience it from foreign soil. Barack Obama, born to a Kenyan father and an American mother, won in a near-landslide. Congratulations, Mr. Obama. And kudos to his challenger, John McCain, for his delivery of such a sincere, classy, and impressive concession speech. Even from overseas, I hope this signals a real change for America, both domestically and abroad.
