As I watched Obama's victory speech a year ago, I thought that America was on the brink of a new progressive era. I believe that just as strongly one year later, as well as in the slogan, "Yes We Can."
No man has ever accomplished all that Obama has with his candidacy. His responsibility to us is to live up to those promises. And our responsibility to him--and our selves--is to make sure that he lives up to the promises.
By becoming so immersed in Barack Obama's campaign, my wife and I have literally put our lives on hold. Our kitchen sink is perpetually full of dirty dishes, the dogs are unwalked and the water faucet is dripping. Turns out, we're not alone.
Obviously the economy looks like it going to be fine, no need to worry there. The next president is going to have to clean up after the man who may be the worst president ever, but how hard could that be?
