A few thoughts on Election night...

Ohio has just been called for Sen. Obama, which should pretty much ensure his win. Should this hold true, we're in for at least four years of an Obama presidency. I have been (and will most likely continue to be) a critic of Sen. Obama. I disagree with his stance on many issues, and with a powerfully Democratic congress, its likely that a host of unfavorable policies will be adopted. That being said, first and foremost we are both Americans, and we both want the best for the country. President Obama will face many challenges, and I hope that he succeeds.
