317. Thanks for stopping by, Chris
I cared more about the results of this election than I have about any other including ones in my own country (Canada.) I think that Bush is a sad excuse for a president and for that matter, a man. But more than that, I was inspired by your step father. I think he is a great man, and would have been a fantastic president. Your country, my neighbour, would have been so much better off, and the world would be steered clear of this scary path Bush is so intent on following.

I have been impressed by you, your family and the Edwards family. You all did yourselves and each other proud. (I think that your dad is looking down and smiling at your efforts.) You are people of intelligence, compassion and ideas. You are in the fortunate position to live a very good life, but it does not blind you to the plight of so many of your fellow citizens. Your actions have been honourable.

I know that you'll all be ok, but my thoughts are with you. We're all deeply disappointed by the results of the election, but I can only imagine how you must feel. You have all poured your lives into an epic battle. You should have won, but you didn't. Take heart, the war is only over if you stop fighting. You can take back your country.

All my best
