I agree. I think that these are extraordinary times and am so glad to have someone so intelligent and calm at the helm. The only time I can remember this country feeling so much like it was coming apart at the seams, was during the late sixties. There are some parallels to now, but I am heartened that at least we ended up with Obama, instead of McCain, as president.
I don't think Obama walks on water, but that he does have the temperament required and sees the long view in regards to creating policy and governing. He doesn't think in 24 hour news cycles or sound bites, which I think serves us better as a country.
When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself. -Isak Dinesen
