{Empty title} | The Nation

America turned a monumental page in our history by electing Barack Obama. Not only is it a repudiation of the worst periods in our past, it is truly a celebration of our greatest strength as a nation--diversity. This gumbo we call America is fueled by our diverse culture in medicine, science, technology, the arts and the economy. Now it is our responsibility as citizens to contribute our talents toward overcoming our immediate challenges and supporting the continuing perfection of this republic.
