"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer. It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waiting three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different; that their voice could be that difference. It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled - Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states:
we are, and always will be, the United States of America." - President Barack Obama

I am very proud to be a part of this country today. I do believe that the best man won and I am very proud of that, but I am also proud of how our country came together and was able to witness this amazing historical moment.
