You really do yourself a disservice when you make these hugely inaccurate generalizations.

Obama will become your Blair. Blair came in with an air of change and confidence and we all know how that ended. Does that swagger remind you of anyone ?

Dont expect too much America.

You're probably too young to remember Thatcher.....

Well Bush is a bazillion times worse, I spent many years living in a Thatcher regime

Obama has some awfully high expectations to live up to. It's inevitable that some people will end up disappointed by whatever he does.

All we can do is wait and see how it all plays out, and what kind of president he will be.

I don't think you've too much to worry about.

Impossible. I have to know EXACTLY what the next four years will be like so I can decide whether or not to hate him a lot or a little today.

I liked Blair.

I remember watching Blair have those face to face meetings with the House of Lords or Commons or both and thinking, "Wow, I wish our leader could actually complete a sentence coherently and MAKE A FUCKING POINT the way this guy can." My expectations aren't sky high. I'll take Blair. I think Obama will be fine. He doesn't swagger as much as he hangs back.

My expectation is that Barack Obama will end the constant fucking up that our government has done for the past eight years.

My biggest concern now is that with the Democrats having damn near complete control, they're really going to do some STUPID shit the next couple of years. It's like ya just can't win. I'm hoping Obama is smart enough and in control enough to prevent the stupidity from getting out of control.

The SCOTUS nominations will be helpful.

"Among the more unusual measures on this year’s ballots was one in Florida that would repeal an old clause in the state constitution that allows legislators to bar Asian immigrants from owning land. The repeal would be symbolic, as equal protection laws would prevent lawmakers from applying the ban. With 78 percent of precincts reporting just before 11 p.m., the vote was close, with 52 percent voting to preserve the clause."


Florida.
