We’ll all be chewing over tonight’s election results in the months ahead. I’m something close to numb at the moment, so accustomed am I to losing elections. But I do feel the beginnings of the scales falling from my eyes, a nascent understanding of what today means. As I watch spontaneous celebrations break out in the streets of cities across the nation and across the world—the White House virtually under siege by celebrants—I know that I’m seeing something unlike anything that’s happened in this country in generations.
A brighter day is ahead. Everything is going to be OK.
