I'm not an Obamaniac. I am hopeful about the prospect of our new president, but I get nervous about all the messianic talk surrounding Mr. Obama during and since the election.
(He can't save us alone.)
Today, I am ever proud to be an American. For what electing Mr. Obama says about ourselves, our values, our country, and our ability to be forward thinking, to reinvent America.
And I am hopeful that in reinventing America we can get the new green economy kick-started under Mr. Obama's leadership.
As I wrote a couple of weeks ago on this blog, "I hope Mr. Obama isn't setting himself up for failure by trying to bring a compromise to the table before the table has been set or by biting off more than he can chew before dinner is served." The coming weeks will tell.
Tonight, I offer our new president my congratulations and admiration. I continue to be impressed with how he brings people together -- conservatives and liberals alike.
Tomorrow, however, is the time to begin turning all the talk into action. So that one day we can say "Yes, We Did...when it mattered most."
