The first African American has been elected to our nation's highest office. Incredible. This is an historic day.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
We've looked at several speeches so far this year and we heard a couple of good ones tonight.
Having just studied JFK's inaugural address, parts of Barack Obama's acceptance speech jumped out to me as being very Kennedy-esque. Though it had strong echoes to JFK, it was also very much his own in tone. I was rather impressed, but I'm interested to know what you think.
For those of you watching tonight, you also heard a very gracious concession speech by John McCain that struck a very different tone to what he put forth during the final month or so of the campaign.
