Can you feel it? The sky is a little clearer, the days a bit brighter. Alt Text is post-ier. With all the energy and attention being placed on the inauguration of Barack Obama and al of the expectations placed upon his Presidency, it is easy to see why some of my friends facetiously call him “the savior”. It is is also why so many people will be disappointed. President Obama can not, nor should he, bring about all the changes people want. He has promised to be a President to all Americans, not just the ones who voted for him. That means that all of his decisions will not be well-regarded from the progressives. They have to get used to that. But with this new President I have confidence that things will be considered and thoughtful and believe that America’s best intentions will be served.
For me, today feels good. There is a return to hope and to optimism and to reason in the capitol and yes, the country today. Happy Obama Day, everyone!
