America makes its choice: President-elect Joe Biden

Cheers broke out in the streets of America's cities Saturday morning as, one by one, the major news outlets broke the news that Joe Biden will be the next president. But that jubilation wasn't shared by the 70 million people who voted to keep President Donald Trump in office for another term, or by the incumbent, who has vowed to challenge the outcome. The country's wounds — not all of them inflicted since 2016 — won't heal quickly amid a raging pandemic, deepening polarization and profound economic uncertainty. And Biden could still be greeted by a split Congress. The work begins now — for all of us.
