November 5, 2008 (Kearny, NJ).  Barack Obama has won the election for President of the United States.  In a very heartfelt speech, Senator John McCain conceded the election late last night to Obama.  It is truly an historic moment.  The first black President of the United States.  More historic then that is that many of us do not measure him by the color of his skin but how eloquently he speaks and inspires us to believe in the promise of America.  Both John McCain and Barack Obama were excellent candidates.  Obama will undoubtedly reach out to McCain for help in dealing with the challenges facing our nation and the world.  Obama's character is exactly what our nation needs.  His demeanor is soothing.  His intelligence refreshing.  His humble beginnings inspiring.   Tonight, our nation proved that we are still the greatest democracy in the world.  That in itself has jumped started the world's moral and economic recovery.
