Sharing a moment...

And so here I am in Houston at a conference and should have been in bed an hour ago. I called down to the front desk to set my wakeup call.

The front desk clerk--a young woman--was so excited. "Did you hear? We have a new president! A landslide. History has been made today." After all of the angst-filled e-mails I've received from my McCain friends, it was a shift in perspective.

No matter where you stand politically, there is something powerful about moving from a world where my mom remembers getting in trouble for drinking from a "colored" fountain (she, of course, wanted colored water instead of plain water) to a world where an African-American wins the presidency.

Do a good job Barack Obama. "We hold these truths to be self-evident" is now in your care.
