I will admit I cried this morning, listening to McCain's gracious concession speech online. While I was bracing myself for Obama to win; I was unprepared for how shocked and disappointed I felt when he did.
We lost a great opportunity by turning down the chance to have President McCain in the White House. Other countries are celebrating tonight; and many Americans will take that as a good sign. I don't.
Leadership, true leadership, has never been a popularity contest, especially by those who aren't willing to themselves lead in the world.
