You may have noticed, on bumpers or t-shirts, the "1.20.09" slogan. It denotes, of course, Inauguration Day for Bush's successor.
With that, I just thought I'd mention that after seven painful years, the Bush presidency will end exactly one year from today. It's obviously something to look forward to. It's an awkward period in Democratic politics right now -- a contentious presidential primary, a frustrated Democratic Congress -- but looking at the light at the end of the tunnel, and knowing it's probably not a train, might serve as a morale booster.
