A great day

I am not ready (yet) to get behind any of the presidential candidates, but I am absolutely bursting with pride as an American that an African-American with a name like Barrack Obama has decidedly won the Iowa caucuses.

For my 11 year old daughter, who is following a presidential campaign for the first time, it is a great day when the very short list of those who will become the leader of the free world includes a woman and a black man.  My sincere hope is that she will grow up wondering how it could have ever been different, and never accepting anything different.

Regardless of who ultimately becomes president, America has just become a better place, and our future a better future.  After the long night, it is indeed morning in America again.
