Bush will be working on the strength of the popular vote victory he didn't have last time, and of gains in both the House and the Senate. That's all the more reason he should be humble. The bitter fight is over, but the wounds are deep. Half the country is frustrated and unhappy—probably a great deal more than half, given the number of people who voted for Bush as the lesser of two evils. I am not suggesting the the President—or any of us—compromise on basic principles, but only that we desperately need to work together and find common ground and common good. Attitude is half the battle, and President Bush has another chance to prove himself a true leader. I pray that he has learned much from his mistakes of the past, and will have the grace and humility to lead the country in forgiving and in seeking forgiveness; in admitting fault and in setting right what is wrong; and in standing firmly for his principles while treating with respect those who would oppose him, always seeking for areas of agreement and recognizing that which is good in his opponents.
