After his remarkable and solid electoral victory, President George W. Bush would do well to reach out to Democrats and the world in dealing with the difficult domestic and international problems confronting him in his second term in office, leading US newspapers said on Thursday.

With a victory that "has put to rest all the ghosts of his father's one-term administration," wrote The New York Times, Bush should take the high road and work toward a consensus with Democrats over pressing social and economic issues.

After clinching a majority of the popular vote and expanding the Republicans' control in both houses of Congress, leaving him "with no question as to his legitimacy," it is hoped Bush will make good on his victory-speech promise to reach out to all Americans, wrote The Washington Post.

Bush should also show US allies "that he is willing to take their views into account on issues such as climate change and controlling the spread of nuclear weapons," said the Post.
