And so it is done, my friends, aside from a last couple clean-up jobs. The Democrats have control of the House, the Senate and the White House. We don’t have a veto-proof majority in the Senate, and it’s unlikely we’ll end up with such once the last four races are settled, but we do have a solid majority.
There’s a lot of work to do, as I’ve mentioned before. We must show ourselves equal to the challenge. The people have put their faith in the Democratic Party and we must live up to their expectations. We must show them that our way, the way of hope, equality, diplomacy and fairness, is better than the way of despair, fear, hate and warfare.
The people have given us a reason to hope. Now we have to justify that hope.
