Obama is the president-elect. We can all take a collective deep breath and feel that maybe, perhaps, true change is on the way.
Imagine the alternative -- even the fashion would have been horrible. The following is taken from the NY Times:
PHOENIX – On Tuesday night, standing on stage as Senator John McCain conceded the election, Gov. Sarah Palin silently blinked away tears. Her husband, Todd, was stone-faced.
None of those tensions were visible by late Wednesday afternoon, when the Palins emerged from their villa at the Arizona Biltmore hotel to head to the airport in their last Secret Service motorcade.
“Hi, guys,” Ms. Palin said brightly, approaching a small group of reporters waiting outside.
With her infant son, Trig, resting on her hip, and dressed down in black sweatpants, high heels and a blue hooded sweatshirt that read “Alaska Grown,” Ms. Palin said it had been an “honor” and a “blessing” to be part of this “wonderful, wonderful campaign.”
