Change we can make happen

Yesterday America voted. I'm both proud of the process and pleased with the result.

We needed change in leadership, and I believe we've made decisions that will give us a change in leadership.

For many years, this country has been governed for the advantage of the few at the expense of the many. It's time to change that.

For many years, the politics of fear have been used to bully and intimidate people. It's time to change that.

The election of Barack Obama and of a slate of national and local candidates who believe in change, who believe in governing for the benefit of all, is an important first step. Today, we all need to begin to assess what we need to change, and how we prioritize and accomplish that change.
