  •  Great diary, and fascinating bit of history (0+ / 0-)

    I don't expect to agree with everything Obama does.  I disagreed vehemently with many things Clinton did.

    What I expect from Obama is that the views of the American people will actually MATTER in his presidency.

    And...the views of REAL EXPERTS will matter, too!  

    Just imagine it - a President who will make the right choices for the country, regardless of ideology, but who will make those choices based on thorough research, deliberation, and by listening to all sides of an argument.  Not just based on "his gut." In other words, this guy will not be "The Decider."

    I expect he will make mistakes.  Some big.  I also expect he will do things I don't agree with at the outset but will later prove to be brilliant.

    But picture this - living in a country where disagreeing with your President doesn't make you a "Traitor", or "Anti-American."  

    That alone to me merits a very long exhale of relief.
