Obama's Victory Speech

See here for the text of Obama's victory speech (and here for the video). I was so impressed with it last night, especially with the degree to which he pointed to his victory as a vindication of the American dream, something many of us thought of as lost, and his reaching out to those who did not vote for him, and promising to be their President and to listen to their voices.

It was also amazing to see the faces of those listening to the speech... so many beautiful emotions.
