The Next President's First Text Message

By Peter Slevin
CHICAGO -- Two minutes before he began speaking, the president-elect's first text message reached the cellphones of many of his millions of supporters:

"We just made history. All of this happened because you gave your time, talent and passion to this campaign. All of this happened because of you. Thanks, Barack"

People a bit further from the center of the nation's attention Tuesday got the message a bit later; it arrived on at least one D.C. cell phone at 1:13 a.m. Wednesday.

Like I said in previous posts. Grandma was watching you Mr. President and beside you all the way. Your god took Grandma,but any god or belief, man or women, new you are the hope. And may I say, Thank you, to all the true American women. Knew you would not let down your Country. Now is the time to be what you were years ago. I remember being an elder. May your god Bless you, and he did.

Congratulations from an Australian. It was a well run politically correct campaign. And
a tough road lays ahead, with the global economic situation, Pakistan/Aghanistan tribal unrest and international relationships. May God assist you in your quest for peace. Well done and God Bless.
