      What a journey! The highest hills, the lowest valleys, and most of us rode it as if we were on a roller coaster.  But not the president.  

      No. He stayed calm, thoughtful, and humble.  I remember after the mid terms when he said we'd gotten "shellacked" and I didn't like to hear him say it at the time. Thought it wasn't politically smart.

      But he's his own man first. A guy who accepts his due, good or bad, whichever way it falls. He's not a man who makes excuses.  He is a man with enough confidence to welcome his own humility.  

      That's what I see on this clip---a man overwhelmed and humbled by the people who put the wind under his wings.

      "A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues." Theodore Roosevelt.
