Let's Reclaim Hope Over Fear, Unity Over Division.

From Paul Rausenbush at comes a great recommendation for action.
Let's remind people why Barack Obama was such a compelling candidate to us 18 months ago. Let's reclaim Hope as a rallying call. Hope is a decision we make about the world and our perspective on it. Let's proclaim loudly that we continue to believe that unity will overcome division, hope will overcome fear, that America has an extraordinary future and that Barack Obama is the person who is best suited to lead us into this next century and to bring us together as a nation. Let's hold on and commit to hope as our compass. And even if the election does not turn out the way I want it to this time, I sincerely hope that I will continue to represent my belief in unity, in common good and work for a better future for all in America. I will vote my hope in November, and live my hope every day. 
For a reminder, watch Obama's speech following his victory in Iowa. In the words of MSNBC host, Chris Matthews, "it will make you leg tingle."
