Congratulations President-Elect Obama

Steve Balch

The National Association of Scholars has always had a high view of America and its traditions, parting company with much of contemporary academic opinion. We see the outcome of yesterday's election, in one crucial sense, as a conclusive vindication of this optimism. Let analysts argue about the policies that separated the candidates, America's voters have made clear, in a way almost inconceivable anywhere else, their heartfelt conviction that all men are created equal. This is a signal moment in American history that we hope will better educate our educators.

The National Association of Scholars is a non-partisan organization, prepared to compliment or criticize as the case warrants. But the heat of the quadrennial battle is always followed by well wishes for the victor - an American tradition that is certainly vital to preserve. We congratulate President-elect Obama on his historic victory and wish him every success in the service of our cherished land.
