Alaska just concluded hard-fought (sometimes bitterly fought) political campaigns for President of the United States President, US Senator, and US Congressman. And there were winners or losers. But what did we see at Election Central in Anchorage’s Egan Center as the vote tallies came in?

We saw huge groups excited people - both happy and sad - loudly chanting their candidate’s names, wildly waving Obama and McCain signs, Stevens and Begich signs, as well as Young and Berkowitz signs. And they were peacefully intermingled all together.

That’s the genius of the American election process, and a tribute to our nation. “Winners” and “losers,” but no bloodshed. That scene doesn’t happen every place in the world. God Bless America.
