I just wanted to write and congratulate you on your candidate's victory. It was a hard-fought campaign, but the vote results tell the tale. I wish President Bush wisdom in his coming term, as I'm sure do all Americans.

Your note shows great integrity and insight. We, too, wish the President wisdom in his coming term. He needs to work very diligently to unite our country. He must demonstrate flexibility, compassion, empathy, understanding, and a willingness to listen to all people and use the best of what is offered. It must be an inclusive administration. We hope he rises to the occasion.
Not since Vietnam, or the War Between the States, have so many houses been divided against themselves. Let us all work to remember our commonalities, even as our differences impel us to disagree.
