Why am I still waking up every morning expecting that the news will tell me the election results have been overturned? I think, it’s a sad commentary on how shaken our faith has been in our electoral system after two stolen Bush victories.

However, I’m also thinking about an anecdote from after John F. Kennedy was shot, as related by the columnist Art Buchwald.

Journalist Mary McGrory said to future Senator Pat Moynihan: “We’ll never laugh again.” To which Moynihan replied, “Oh, we’ll laugh, but we’ll never be young again.”

I think Obama has the potential, with his energy, his vision and his wonderful family (yes, I’m thinking about that puppy), to make us young again.
