I want to come out with a message of support for our new president. I admire people with vision, as you may have been able to ascertain from my obsession with romanticism. I have never found Obama's words to have any hint of patronizing attitude nor condescension; he will work to make the USA better, and so should all its citizens.
If you haven't seen it yet, here his victory speech, complete with a transcription.
I am proud to be an American.
