It does appear that the American people have spoken, and have narrowly but clearly, decided to return President Bush to office. Clearly, this was not my choice, but the system has worked as it has for over 200 years now. I wish President Bush the best of luck, and hope that he will guide the country with wisdom and strength.

It was not a good night for Democrats, but the party will take its lumps and move on. They will continue to fight for the principles that we believe in and continue their opposition when necessary.

The country remains divided along regional lines. My hope is that this division can be breached, or at least narrowed. Perhaps the next four years will bring the country closer together than the last. That should be the hope and goal of all Americans.
