This is a moment of joy and satisfaction.
The peacemaker Obama, who opposed the Iraq War, will continue to serve the world with his idealism, intelligence and audacity of hope. Opposing the Iraq was an act of great foresight and courage. He has earned the congratulations and earnest good wishes of the world. He has given politics a fresh nobility and intellectual rigour. He leads the nation that has sacrificed, more than any nation, the lives of their sons and daughter in the tasks of bringing democracy to the world. He now must end the Afghan bloodshed and avoid an Iran War.
