As Craig Ferguson is fond of saying, this is a great day for America. Congratulations to us all. With President-Elect Barack Obama on deck and Bush on the way out, we can all be hopeful about the future.
Of course, this euphoria could end up temporary if his early Presidency doesn’t turn out to be nearly as brilliant as his campaign. As with every Presidential election, the candidates over-promised to get elected. Now, the challenge will be to manage those high expectations so that he can appear successful and therefore be successful. It’s not going to be easy; I wish him luck.
