Yesterday, Senator Obama met with the top briefers from the NSA, CIA, DIA. He was given a history lesson (info which never makes the front pages) and the best insights that all our hundreds of billions in technology can give us. Of course, our intel units are still seriously hampered by having no human based info, but, that’s an issue for another day.
With the election over and new revelations about the excesses of Republican vice presidential joke Sarah Palin emerging daily, we learn more and more about the incredibly dysfunctional Presidential campaign of John McCain.
When compared to Palin, Dan Quayle becomes a mental giant. Spiro Agnew emerges as a paragon of virtue. Dick Cheney is a laid-back moderate.
President-elect Barack Obama prepared to hold his first post-election news conference Friday as he lost little time in assembling an administration that is sailing into a sea of troubles.
With stock markets once again in freefall, Obama was to convene a meeting of his high-powered panel of economic advisers before the first press conference since his triumph in Tuesday’s election against Republican John McCain.
Even in the powerful afterglow of historic Election Day 2008, realism makes us ask: What will Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office mean for us?
Americans are known for their eagerness for a new president to succeed. We do give each one a honeymoon. We traditionally have suspended judgment for 100 days, preferring to be believers in a new administration. Already, some voters who vehemently supported John McCain are rushing to take credit for Obama’s victory. (However, if he proves a disappointment, they will just as quickly distance themselves from him.)
Congratulations to Barack Obama, the incoming 44th President of the United States. He soon will fill America’s highest office after a nearly flawless, first-time White House bid. He demonstrates that education, eloquence, and elegance trump lingering racial bias. His staunchly left-liberal ideas aside, he inspires in many ways. May he govern justly and make every American proud.
Now, what about those who Obama and his supporters vanquished? What the Republican Party badly needs is a Night of the Long Knives.
Barack Obama’s historic victory has created a new electoral map.
Several red Republican states turned blue for Democrats on Election Day. Some blue states turned even bluer. Predictably, the result has buoyed Democrats and depressed Republicans. Less predictable is whether the change will last.
My son, a nominal Republican, called from the West Coast to inform me that he had just voted for Barack Obama.
"I just felt l had to be a part of history," he said excitedly. "I wanted to be able to say that I helped elect the first African American president of the United States."
The profoundness of Barack Obama’s victory, unfolds in our universal consciousness daily.It’s been a growing experience.
There’s a worldwide sigh of relief, that a seemingly sane human being surfaced,capable,and willing, to Lead this country out of a morass of sins bestowed upon the Earth by a single political party.
