As it has been for many Americans, the past week has been one of high anxiety for me. Yesterday brought news that allowed me to fully exhale for the first time in what seems like months, maybe years. Usually we would pop a cork on such an occasion, and yet it’s hard to feel celebratory when I consider how many Americans are unhappy about this outcome. It was not an easy victory. How did our country come to this? We have a long road ahead. But for the first time in four years I feel hopeful that we have someone to follow on that road. And that is definitely worth celebrating.
