      It really doesn’t get better than President Obama; I think this is the hard truth most Americans will come to find out in time…let’s just hope it’s not too late then.

    Chi, I agree with your statement completely. My hope is that he will be our President for two full terms, and will have the legislative support required to correct our course. My heart is sickened by the racial, religious and political intolerance that has surfaced, however if there is any inherent value in the fact that it has, it is that we can no longer deny it existence. We can’t solve our intolerance when we refuse to acknowledge is exisitence. I believe our President will earn a special place in history, not only because he is our first President of color, a very important milestone for this country and not one that should be diminished, but because of the wisdom of his leadership and the record of his accompolishments. Additionally, his ability to inspire citizens to participate more activately in the processes of government has the potential to shift the balance of power back into the hands of the people where it has always belonged. We are witnessing, I believe, a Legend in the making.
