I'm optimistic, but then, believe it or not, I was optimistic when
Bush won in 2008 (while your Country was going pretty well at the
time, I'd had just about enough of Bill Clinton's bullshit, and Al
Gore was not a viable alternative -- possibly anyone else (anyone with
a identifiable personality) may have beaten Bush -- but it was obvious
that the swing, even just to the middle was NOT what (the collective)
you wanted)... it took Bush, probably the biggest disappointment
since... forever... a catastrophe, to elect ANY Democrat!

Fortunately, Obama doesn't seem too full of shit and genuinely wants
to facilitate change. I'll be interested to see how that is received
when all is said and done. I just hope they don't spend 4 years on
"the first African-American President" thing. It's so yesterday!

Even Obama stopped short of suggesting a second term. Let's just see
how it goes.
