My faith in the intelligence of the American people has been more than justified by their actions at the ballot box. This is a new day for America.. The real task of the Republican Party now begins. We must go forward cautiously but firmly to recreate a leadership that is strong morally and physically, so that we may again command the respect of the world. We must build a prosperity that is built upon peace -- not upon war. We must be careful to maintain any of the social advance made over the past 20 years keeping in mind that there have been some good Democratics and Democratic ideas over the past 20 years. As we supplant the Truman Administration it must be done without bitterness and (?). We can -- must -- and will recreate a government of, by and for all the people."
