Secretary of Transportation: Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.); Rep. Jim Oberstar (D-Minn.)
Two of our favorite Senators listed (solely) as the possible candidates for DoT Secretary... A far cry from the last 8 years.
On another note I think we can all take part in the pride surrounding our country's growth. To many this was a deciding factor (maybe even both ways), but I think to a lot of people it is simply a tremendous bonus to come along with this election (win or lose). It says something about our country that makes me proud to say I'm a part of it that we, as a whole, can finally get past our prejudices, if not fully at least enough to make it obvious that in the grand scheme of things race doesn't matter!
For that, I think we can ALL be thankful.
Congratulations President Obama and family and congratulations America, the true melting pot of the world.
