Let's go back to one week ago today. The news media were cautious in not announcing the end of the election too early. Suddenly, at 11:00 PM, the news broke of Barack Obama's victory and America entered a new era: the election of our first African-American president; the end of the Bush era, which would have continued had McCain been elected; and a new sense of hope in terms of America's domestic priorities and its place in the world.
The CNN broadcast above captured this thrilling turning point in American history, epitomized by the exhilarated crowd in Grant Park in Chicago and the headline "Barack Obama Elected President."
Despite the fact that a week has passed, I'm still excited and amazed. How about you?
