President Obama

I disagree politically with President Obama,  but wish him luck.  There are a lot of problems that he will have to face.  If he succeeds the country succeeds!

It's great that the inauguration will be the day after Martin Luther Day.

The country has survived many average or bad presidents; we need a good one right now!

PRESIDENT, (n) The leading figure in a small group of men of whom -- and of whom only -- it is positively known that immense numbers of their countrymen did not want any of them for President.
If that's an honor surely 'tis a greater
To have been a simple and undamned spectator.
Behold in me a man of mark and note
Whom no elector e'er denied a vote! --
An undiscredited, unhooted gent
Who might, for all we know, be President
By acclimation. Cheer, ye varlets, cheer --
I'm passing with a wide and open ear!
Jonathan Fomry
