T minus seven days.
Just one moe week to the most significant transfer of power in the last decade. I have to admit to getting a bit aprehensive lately. We asked for change and got what we wanted, but are we really up to the challenges ahead? Expectations for a new President Obama are far more than are realistic. Particulary in the international arena. So much so, I fear that speculation that the flare up in Gaza is a petulant last kick from both sides before the percieved new hall monitor comes into the room. Is that really possible?
The President-elect has a background as a community organizer, which the US needs on a national level. But will he be able to move the elite players in Washington as well? Will he even try?
I remain cautiosly optimistic about the future. I also wonder about how I will fit into a new world order.
