WASHINGTON (CNN) – This was a "cool" speech, not a rouser. That is the quality Americans admire most in Obama - he’s cool and reassuring at a time of great anxiety. Everything will be O.K. We can get through this. But it demands something from all of us: "What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility."

    It was cool and moved me to tears. I am so proud to be an American today.
    Congratulations President Obama.
