President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden have been re-elected to lead this nation another four years.
Former Gov. Mitt Romney has conceded the election for himself and running mate Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan.
Those voters who desired this outcome can enjoy the moment. Ohio was the state whose votes clinched the election for the Obama/Biden ticket.
Thanks again to Ohio Elderblogger, Kay, at "Kay's Thinking Cap" whose dedicated volunteer election efforts to re-elect President Obama benefited all of us, since many of our states voting outcome wasn't as much in question. Knowing my former home state, I'm sure the community in which she tirelessly toiled was a particularly significant one in which to make voters aware of the candidates and issue differences. Certainly all of our states were important in the election's outcome, but Ohio voters proved to be key as analysts predicted. Their votes clinched the necessary Electoral College votes for President Obama.
Much work lies ahead in resolving this nation's problems. We still have a Congress composed of political party divisions similar to those existing during the previous four years. There will be a few new members, including women you may read about in this Huff Post. What meaningful effect to facilitate constructive governing action they and the few added new men may have remains to be seen.
Hopefully, all returning Senators and Representatives will seriously reassess why we elected them, consider how they can take effective action to move our nation forward.
We have a job, too! That is to see to oversee and direct the actions they take for the good of all our citizens, not just a few. Expect you already have your list of what you want accomplished.
