Congrats To Our New President-elect.

Barack Obama has attained the highest office in our land and deserves every bit of praise and support for his accomplishment. I don't agree with the majority of his policies, but Obama made history in the US tonight and he is surely who this country wanted to lead us the next four years.

When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his most famous "I have a dream" speech, he wished for the day when "my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

This is a momentous occasion in the history of the US, but I'm not convinced that Obama was elected sorely on the content of his character.

What I am convinced of is that this country will not deny someone the highest job in the land because of the color of their skin. This is what Dr. King dream t of and this is something very much worth celebrating.

Congrats and good luck President Obama.
