The long national nightmare is over. There were times it seemed these past 8 years (has it really been 8 years?) would stretch on forever, and that a sane, rational, calm, and above all intelligent person would never occupy the White House again.
Just finished watching his speech, and for the first time ever wished I had worked on a political campaign and really done something besides just vote. Blame it on my cynicism.
The comparison between his speeches and anything ever uttered by Bush is mindblowing. I’m actually looking forward to the inauguration instead of dreading it for a third time.
