I am stunned and at the same time ecstatic at the news just minutes ago that Barack Obama has been elected the 44th President of the United States, with the projection that he has won California and therefore has gained a majority of the Electoral College votes!

This is a tremendous development for a country that has suffered greatly in its image overseas,  and it has also restored faith in the future of America domestically.  We now have a fresh start and hope for the best as Barack Obama faces a daunting challenge in both domestic economic policy and foreign policy.  All Americans need to unite behind the new President as he attempts to deal with a crisis on the level of the Great Depression and the Civil War.  We can only hope that he is up to the task, as we desperately need leadership on the level of Franklin D Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln!
