US Vote an Example For Arabs

I congratulate the author for the positive approach he takes in this article. While the people of Algeria, hoping for democracy, watched our political system at work during the United States presidential election and wondered how the outcome would affect their interests, I am proud that North Africans noticed the graciousness of our leadership following the election. They saw that Americans have a democracy that encourages getting behind the new president-elect, regardless of which candidate we voted for

in the election.

The last quote in the article that a businessman made after watching President Bush's concession speech is worth repeating: "The most powerful man on Earth has just lost his battle, and his first response is to call on the country and his people to stand behind his rival. That's a beautiful lesson for all of us." Jamey A. Brown, Florence, Ala.
