Now the Real Work Begins

As I toured Australia last week, I heard the same message over and over again. As one Australian told me: "America is our close cousin, mate. We love you but we hope you become a better world citizen."

We've done a lot of things right -- and a lot of things wrong -- as a nation. Regardless of whom you supported in the US Presidential Election, it's time for us to capture the energy we're witnessing this evening and move forward. We've all got a lot of work to do.

The world is watching.
