Absconding politics?
On democracy and nation-building

Congratulations to the Democrats!

It has been a long, dark night and (despite what I said yesterday's post) it is possible that it just may be morning in America again.  We can't change the past.  We need to learn from it, look the present directly in the eyes, and move forward. 

Yesterday's victory would not have been possible without the support of many of the people who were guilty of enabling the terrible Bush regime.  I will never be able to sympathize with the viewpoints of anybody who voted Republican during the past 6 years.  But I am grateful, and most of the world is grateful, that so many of you finally did the right thing.

This victory is a small, but necessary step in the enormous challenge of creating a future that is habitable and worth living in.  I do want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
