Congratulations, Sen. Obama

By Tim Butler | Posted at 10:51 PM

This election did not turn out how I hoped, but the time has come to congratulate President-elect Barack Obama on his victory tonight. I also congratulate his supporters, of which I call many friends. We have called the election at OFB.

We may not agree on every issue, but I believe we agree that we want a better future for the country. Let's hope everyone can work together for that. Let us have a spirited debate on the issues that challenge us, but let us do so respectfully and remembering that we are all Americans.

I thank Sen. John McCain for running a honorable, challenging campaign and for representing me and many of my fellow Americans over the past months admirably. I look forward to seeing him continue to do the business of the country in the coming years in the Senate. I appreciate his classy speech tonight (Read It Here) congratulating Sen. Obama — it once more showed why I am proud to have cast my vote for him, despite the outcome.

May God bless the next president of the United States, my president, and the people he will govern in the years to come.
