And Now, a Word from the GOP...

Web surfers who have followed this election closely know that National Review’s Corner blog has been a hotbed of anti-Obama hysteria. So Jim Manzi’s salute to Barack Obama is particularly touching. “This was not some prize bestowed upon him,” Manzi writes, “and Barack Obama didn’t just buy a winning lottery ticket; he out-smarted and out-worked both Hillary Clinton and John McCain. It is healthy that the American political system gathers the energies and talents of those who feel excluded into the nation to change it, rather than pushing them away from the nation to oppose it. … There are about 1,460 days until the next Presidential election, and I assume that I will spend approximately the next 1,459 of them opposing Barack Obama. But I’m spending today proud abut what my country has overcome.”
