It's true. It's the only election for prez in my entire life I voted for a Republican. I did vote against Reagan in his second term bid, but over the years ended up glad he win because Mondale was a dweeb. Dukakis was a tough one, but I bucked up and did the dirty deed and voted for him.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
