(CNN) – The great modern American presidents have been transformational figures - Americans who could inspire a country with their words, lift it with their hopes and take our country into the future: FDR, JFK, Reagan.
These men took an uncertain country beyond economic depression and the arms race and the threat of nuclear war and led America into New Frontiers. Each began the country anew. They transformed the country they led.
Today, America faces a new global frontier, challenging our security and economic prominence. To lead us, we have chosen another New Frontier president, another transformational leader. He, like they, has the potential to inspire and unite and become one of our great transformational presidents.
May God bless him and keep him and guide him on a successful journey.
obama!!! heck ya
people are so excited, I hope this excitement will not sober up.
I still think Hillary would be the real change for this country.
Congratulation to Obama.
America died tonite. We watched a muslim socialist buy the most powerful position in our government with funds from the middle east. I have to question the comparison to Adolf Hitler promising a chicken in every pot. I get to watch Obama take my hard earned money and promise it to a deadbeat on welfare. Yeah!!!!!! He won't even put his hand over his heart for the national anthem.
I hope that you are right, but from all that I've read on Obama, I don't see him as that but someone who will be bad and put more of a tax burdun on the average person.
congrats obama, may God be your protection throughout your term as well as your guide. now america can begin to change into a nation that can finally let down barriers and receive each other as people not races. As a wife, mom, and college student I thank God to have a president who now sees my needs and counts me as a person.
I hope I am wrong about the course America chose today. I hope it's a transformation for the better, but I have severe doubts.
I'm certain the Obama supporters know what it's like to hope.
FDR, JFK, and Reagan all said how they were going to do it.
May God Bless us and your family. God Bless America!
YES WE DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally our country as elect a leader, that no matter what sex or race, for as long as is for the best of the country. Now we can celebrate a new coming of Great American leadership and now is the time to regain our number one status in the world!!!!!! Mccain is a good man but we could not afford his policies. God bless America and the world.
Check the map Obama. The South did not want you for President because you are a black Muslim, socialist, racist. I am buying ammo now before you outlaw it.
i don't know about you.... but i,ve been soo moved! YES WE CAN! congratulations president elect....Barack Obama!
I hope that you are right, but from all that I've read on Obama, I don't see him as that but someone who will be bad and put more of a tax burden on the average person.
This guy is nothing more than a symbol. Let's see what he's really made of besides speeches and words and ego.
Get ready for the velvet Shaft pictures to go up in the White "purple" house
hate to say i told you so.......
YES WE CAN!!!!!
let the healing begin. "THE NEW DAWN OF AMERICAN LEADERSHIP IS A HAND"
Yeah, he'll transform my paychecks into tax payments.
America loses today.
IT IS DONE!
Wow. I have tears in my eyes and hope in my heart. Unite, America! We are better than what was shown during the campaign. We are good and just and all of us American.
