And, as Obama said, this "win" isn't for him. It's for all of us. It's for the citizens of the US who are the true owners of this country.

Political power has always supposed to have been of the people, for the people and by the people. It was institutions such as Homeland Security that started to make governmental power "in spite of the people."

Maybe some of that gets set right again.
