Happy Obama Day

I'm sitting in my office watching the lead up to the inauguration, and I find myself reflecting on what I expect from our new president. I'm not so foolish as to think that he'll wave his Jedi hand and all will be puppies and flowers, but I do think that we can, at the very least, expect competence.

And that's a change I can live with.

This is an auspicious day, and I am proud to be an American on this day, and even more proud that mine was one of the votes that helped make this possible.

We still have a lot of work ahead, but hopefully we'll have a good hand on the tiller for the next four to eight years.

Yep, it's been over 40 years or so since I felt this good about being an American.
