Congratulations, President-Elect Obama

<p>From conservative writer Ross Douthat (<a href="http://rossdouthat.theatlantic.com/archives/2008/11/president_barack_oba... target="_blank">link</a>):</p> <blockquote> <p>...Obama has just been elected President of a nation in which he could have been bought and sold as a slave just seven generations ago. I don't think there are any words adequate to the occasion of America electing its first black President, so I'll just say this: This may be a bleak day for the Republican Party and for conservatism, but come what may in the years ahead, it's a great day for our country. Barack Obama deserves congratulations, tonight, but so does the nation he's about to govern: We've come a long, long way.</p></blockquote>
