A majority of the people of America has spoken and Barack Obama has been elected President of the United States.

KSL adds our voice of congratulations.

Typical of most political battles for such a coveted prize, the campaign has been filled with rancor and acrimony. Such, unfortunately, is the nature of American politics. It isn't a new phenomenon. History is replete with examples of bitterly fought campaigns. Most of them, in fact, fall into that category. Yet, the nation has survived, which underscores the wonder of American democracy.

Indeed, what is significant is the way Americans traditionally set aside their differences to acknowledge and honor their newly elected president even though they may have stark differences with the man and his political positions.

As has been said on many occasions such as this, no president is elected to serve one party, but to work for the benefit of the entire nation.

KSL trusts President-elect Obama will indeed earnestly strive to unify the nation as well as earn the respect of his bitterest political enemies. And while there should still be vigorous debate as a new administration takes over, the people of America, generally, should stand behind the man who will become the 44th President of the United States.
