Tonight I am hopeful. I am hopeful that America can get back on the right track. I am hopeful that Obama will advance a moderate and pragmatic government. I am hopeful that Obama will do his best to unify our divided nation. I am hopeful that our country has left race issues where they belong, in the past. I am hopeful that Americans will put aside their partisan politics and come together as a country to move our country in a new and better direction. Tonight, I am hopeful.
