I love this country. I love that we don't need to have a war to have our leaders change power. I love hearing the Star Spangled Banner.
I don't much care for politics. I still don't. My thoughts on our new president are thus:
I feel the expectations placed on him are to high. No one could maintain them. I don't agree with some of his ideas (I didn't agree with everything from the other guy either) and I hope he does a good job. Mostly I'm glad that we can have a shift of power go so easily from one person to the next.
In the words of W: Mission Accomplished.
