Welcome to the Real World, Obama!

So the honeymoon is over. Being President-elect must have been an easy job with everything waiting for today. But now the clock on the first 100 days will start ticking. Being President in these troubled times will not be an easy job and I rather fear that President Obama has been given an near impossible task by many of his closest supporters - the American (and foreign) media.

Many moons ago I wrote this. My feelings on Obama haven't changed much but I am saddened by his choice of running mate (Biden) and Secretary of State (Clinton). Neither sum up "change" for me, just the "same old".

But in the spirit of the day, Hail to the Chief!
