November 2008

The world just changed. I'm hard pressed to put into words exactly what it means to me, so far removed from any concrete consequences of this event.

I think it's this: today, I saw humanity make a good choice, a choice not based in fear and insularity and judgment, but in hope and life and growth. Today, humanity reached for something better, something good, and in the very act of reaching found it.

Today, I rediscovered hope; not in a man, or a nation, or a system, but in humanity.

newsweek.com/id/167581 Maybe of interest if you've not already seen it. It's about the entire campaign, written by a group of reporters who pretty much moved in at the beginning and were embargoed till the day after the Results came in. Looks rather interesting!

To Quote:

As in the previous editions, "How He Did It, 2008" is an inside, behind-the-scenes account of the presidential election produced by a special team of reporters working for more than a year on an embargoed basis and detached from the weekly magazine and Newsweek.com. Everything the project team learns is kept confidential until the day after the polls close.
