From then on -- victory was never mentioned -- hope and healing instead became the words of the hour.
I am optimistic that we can change the tone of Washington, D.C. I believe things happen for a reason, and I hope the long wait of the last five weeks will heighten a desire to move beyond the bitterness and partisanship of the recent past."
Most agree it will be an uphill battle -- especially for a man who will become only the 4th President in history who lost the popular vote, and ended up in the White House. GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT ELECT "The Presidency is more than an honor, more than an office. It is a charge to keep, and I will give it my all. Thank you and good night. May God bless America." "The healing will begin on a personal note -- at a face to face meeting with the Vice President on Tuesday in Washington--the first time the two have met since the debates -- what a different time it is now.
