Can He Do It?

Finally, the election is over.  It has been a frustrating and anxious journey for many people on both sides of the aisle.  Now it is over and Obama won.  Fortunately for the country, the election wasn't close.  This meant that we didn't have to deal with nasty recounts and legal juggling.  I voted for McCain and would have rather seen him win.  Of the two candidates I felt like McCain would be the best leader but the majority of the country disagrees with me.  I can live with that.  Obama promised change and hope.  He has a party majority in both houses of congress, he has a willing and powerful press, he has the unflinching support of the celebrities of America, and he has the votes of the majority of Americans.  So bring on the changes (for the better).

I voted against Obama because I didn't believe that he could change the country like he said he could.  I think his ideas are wrong headed and will not work.  However, I'm willing to be wrong on this.  If he can improve the economy, strengthlen national security, reduce threats to our country, and solve our energy problems (clean energy) then I'm all for it.  For now I'm going to wait and see what happens.
