I am by no means very political... however
I must say, I had high hopes for President Obama. I could never really decide between McCain and Obama before the election, but that was a time when I had little access to news and information other than CNN or Fox during lunch and dinner (which was usually muted). I can see a few things that looked good then, and have taken a slightly different turn now. Especially with the government spending, though some could say they saw that coming.
I hope in some areas he is still capable of doing some good that will ring true of that 'New Hope' idea he was elected under. But I think for him to make it through his term and not be hailed as a catastrophe will also do for now. Here's to the future, and may things change for the betterment of all mankind, and not just the rich, predominately white, homophobic and "American" politicians.
