A celebration of democracy

From Walter Mondale's remarks to supporters in Minnesota Tuesday night.m Now we must stand together behind our President-elect, all of us. We have only one President; he deserves our support; he will have it.

We have come to rejoice. We are, above all, thank God, privileged to live in a democracy. Today the American people quietly wielded their staggering power, and peacefully, without intimidation, made their choice. And whatever the outcome, tonight we celebrate above all the process we call American freedom.

I am deeply honored to have served as Vice-President of the United States.

I have no regrets for I have learned in this office about our country's richness and our world's promise.
