Our long national shame is over

When President Ford took over following Richard Nixon's resignation, he said, "Our long national nightmare is over," referring to the Watergate scandal.

With Barack Obama's ascension to the presidency, our long national shame is over, and I'm proud to be an American again, for the first time in a long time.

We're a country in which white citizens voted for a black president.

We're a country that will end a war that should never have been waged.

We're a country that will never torture again.
