Yes we did.

America, high-fives all around.  

Especially you, Sarah Palin.  

Thanks.  You can go home now. 

Republicans, please listen to the words of your former candidate:

'I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together, to find the necessary compromises, to bridge our differences, and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited.

Whatever our differences, we are fellow Americans. And please believe me when I say no association has ever meant more to me than that.'

Now is the time to show a little patriotism-- real patriotism, not the cheap, partisan knock-off that is pinned to everybody's lapels.

Absolutely, Michael. For the first time in my adult life, I feel that "rolling up my sleeves" and participating in our democracy is a real privilege. "Yes, we did," but now, "Yes, we should!"

Rock on in the free world, people.
