It’s only been 50 minutes or so since Barack Obama was declared President-elect. Â I’ve been watching, listening, reading for most of those minutes, and I have to say I’m a little shocked at the reaction of some of his supporters. Â While I admire your optimism, I wonder if you aren’t setting yourselves up for some major disappointment. Â I was worried that people may have set their expectations a little high, but now I’m pretty sure of it.
Although George Bush went absolutely berzerk in expanding the power of the federal government and the Presidency, I’m not sure he went far enough for Barack Obama to make the kind of sweeping changes you guys think are going to come about on January 20, 2009.
I hope you guys aren’t too disappointed if you don’t get what you are wishing for, and I really hope you guys aren’t too disappointed if you do get what you are wishing for. Â With the incoming Congress, it’s reasonable to Â expect them to help him make all of these dreams come true.
There’s been many a bride who looked towards her wedding day with a romantic gleam in her eye and never considered what it would mean to be married.
Wedding cake is delicious though, even though I prefer pie.
