One day to change the world

On the eve of the US election, Andrew Sullivan sets out at length why those who believe in American democracy, and take seriously the internal and external threats ranged against it, should support Barack Obama for president. Closing quote:

(T)here is something about his rise that is...supremely American, a reminder of why so many of us love this country so passionately and are filled with such grief at what has been done to it and in its name. I endorse Barack Obama because I will not give up on America, because I believe in America, and in her constitution and decency and character and strength.

And the world needs that America now as much as it ever has. Can we start that healing, that rebirth, tomorrow?

Yes. We. Can.

Know hope:
