Obama's Reelection Signals Rise Of New America

HuffingtonPost.com | Howard Fineman | Posted 11.07.2012 | Politics

Barack Obama won because of his stand on the issues -- health care reform, Wall Street regulation, the auto industry bailout, among others. But his victory is something more: a sense that we are all in this together as a society, no matter who we are or how we live our lives. I saw this new America at the heart of the Obama reelection effort, in their campaign offices. In one office in Virgina, for example, the local campaign manager was Pakistani-American, the volunteers were of every race and background, the people heading out to handle the signup drive were Hispanic, and the event they were working on was a concert by Bruce Springsteen.

Obama Symbolizes America at Its Best

Seeing Obama, and his family, at the White House, allows us to soak in an image that personifies a country that may well live up to its billing as a place for that freedom and equality.
