Obama Video Address: November 29, 2008

For many Americans, it is hard to find something for which to be thankful this year. One of the roles that our leaders must play is to remind us of our past successes and our ability to overcome adversity. On a personal level, we can be thankful for the presence of our loved ones and the fond memories of those no longer with us. On a political level, we can be thankful for a country that every four years gives us the opportunity to re-invent ourselves, without a coup, without bloodshed. If any election in our lifetime represented this chance to re-invent, it was the election of 2008.

This Thanksgiving, Barack Obama reminds us that we will come out of these hard times together as one nation and that better days are ahead.

And now, the President-elect:

Respectfully,
Rutherford
