One thing that struck me most about Obama's landslide victory on Tuesday was the celebrations not only in American cities (Berkeley, where I live, was a mob-scene, sailors-kissing-nurses celebration from 9pm when the networks called it for Obama until very late into the night) but even more strikingly around the world - great crowds of people in Berlin, Paris, Nairobi, Tokyo, London and elsewhere were cheering, crying, popping champaign, and chanting "yes we can."

"We." The world. America and the world are now on the path to reconciliation and renewal.
