The losing Republican candidate – and it feels good to
write these words – hit all the high notes in graciously talking about unity,
compromise, working together, what makes America great and so forth. If Romney had
revealed such an intellectual, moderate and compassionate side during the
election campaign, the nation might have believed he was such a person. And he
might have had a chance at winning.
But he didn’t.
And that’s why America’s victory — President Barack
Obama’s re-election to a second and final four-year term – is a great win for the world.
