I could talk about the belated resurgence in my nation of the belief that we are our government, and that our government is the tool we have built to allow us to care for one another -- that it's the solution, not the problem.
I could crow about the routing of the robber-baron kleptocrats who have piled shame on the United States of America for so long.
Instead, I'll say simply this:
I'm proud, so very proud, to be part of a nation that, when all was said and done, chose Ann Nixon Cooper over Joe the Plumber.
Yes, we can.
