    President. I tried NOT to listen to him as much as possible.  I knew we were stuck for 4 yrs, after the Supreme Court gave him the presidency.  What I wasn't ready for was a second questionable win.  Almost needed anti-depressants to get through those years.  Now, I just hope we haven't devolved too far to come back.

      My estranged wife said she was traumatized by the 2004 election, as she truly believed Kerry would be our next President.  So on Election Night 2008, we both wept for joy when Obama won.  I've been disappointed in a number of things Obama has done or allowed, but I've never been actively embarrassed by his words or his actions.  That he could correctly pronounce "nuclear" has been a HUGE credit to him in my eyes!

        I was a basket case for a week after the 2004 election.  So chin-dragging depressed that, as one friend phrased it, I needed a ladder to climb onto a cigarette paper.  Four more years of Idiot Boy and Darth Cheney?  Nooooooooo!
