Hail to the Chief

Barak Obama
White House
Washington, DC

Dear Mr. President-Elect,

Hail to the Chief! Congrats to you and yours on a magnificent Presidential win. Now that it is all behind you, I think you'll probably be sleeping like Santa after Christmas day. I wanted to be one of the first ones to wish you good luck on the tough road ahead. I know you of all people know that it's not going to be easy. The best part about today, the day after your win, is that there is no more, "your side, my side,"what's left is the hope that we are all on OUR side. I think our country could handle a large dose of that.

There are just a few things I wanted to ask of you. Could you try your best to be a legendary leader? If anybody can do it, you can. Keep us safe from terror domestically and take our troops home so that we don't loose any more of our great men and women. The time has come.

Make us proud. Proud that we have made history in this great country by choosing our first black president, not just for the color of his skin, but for the power of his message. Let your commanding oration be a beacon for all that is possible in this world.

Lead by example and choose your advisers wisely. Never, even once, compromise what is right and good for the sake of being popular.

Show the world the resiliency of our powerful nation and help us to get out of this financial mess we are blanketed in. I don't expect miracles but where you lead I will follow, trusting that you will point us in the right direction.

Be a man of integrity. Both home and abroad. Teach us how to be a father and husband, all the while maintaining the most important job in the country.

Most of all, be safe. There are alot of crazy people out there who are NOT happy you won the election. I will pray for your saftey against ignorance. Thank you in advance for putting your life on the line for us every day you are in office so that we can be inspired.

God bless and godspeed,
Thanks for listening,

I'm with you on praying for his safety. Even last night... watching him walk around on that stage, all I was thinking was 'look out!'
