This says it ALL.

The Dalai Lama said in his congratulatory message to Biden: "Humanity places great hope in the democratic vision of the U.S. as leader of the free world."

The link above covers a number of global responses to the Biden/Harris victory. So far, the totalitarian regimes (Russia, China, Brazil, Turkey, and Iran) have been reticent to congratulate President-Elect Biden, whereas the rest of the world is, more-or-less, ecstatic to know that Democrats will be running the country again soon.

8. You're right. Thank you.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Tuesday became the latest world leader to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, Reuters reported.

Erdoğan said in a statement that the Turkish government is "determin[ed] to work closely with the U.S. Administration" in the days ahead, according to the news service.

Biden has been a frequent critic of the Turkish president, calling him an "autocrat" and telling The New York Times editorial board that, as president, he would back opposition leadership "by the electoral process."

17. No doubt.

On the other hand, our South Korean allies, our REAL allies, are thrilled that Joe will soon be in charge:

South Korean President Moon Jae-in also posted a congratulatory weekend tweet before telling reporters Monday that he will work to "make sure that there won't be any vacuum in the strengthening of the South Korea-U.S. alliance and progress in the Korea peace process."

4. All our hopes for making good on the original promise. . .

. . . we have utterly failed to live up to.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.


May the nation finally work EFFECTIVELY toward these aspirations.

6. It's very comforting to know that the adults are back in charge.

The children had their fun and nearly destroyed the country and life as we know it in the process. But playtime is over and it's time to get the world moving again.

One of my mom's pearls of wisdom I snarked at as a youngster. God, what a fool I was.

20. No. I suspect he meant to use the upper-case D.

It is the Democratic Partyís vision of America that he was celebrating. Thatís what is so AWESOME about the quote.

22. That's about as political as the Dalai Lama gets.

His salutation is encouraging and congratulatory, but a little oblique. He is describing how others feel.

How do you like that? A Tibetan spiritual leader has a better grasp of the separation of church and state than Republicans.
