Four years ago and eight years ago when Barack Obama was elected and re-elected, we congratulated you, acknowledged your victory and wished you and the nation the best.
That's how it went down.
We were more than courteous about it. We were gracious.
It wasn't easy for us, but we did it. After all, it was the right thing to do.
So, we ask you -- now, will you reciprocate?
Will you reach out and do the same for us, and for the nation, will you?
C'mon -- it's time to sing Kumbaya, dear friends.
And we'll gladly accept your congratulations and best wishes, if not your apologies!
