    Obama rocks!!!!

    What can I say? His Executive Orders on interrogation and detention are the best news I've heard in eight years.

    I feel like a weight has been lifted from my mind and shoulders.

    All the hard work and sacrifices for the Obama campaign were worth it. Overnight!

    Wow.  I can't believe it.

    OK, I know that in the future I'll disagree with some of the appointments and policy choices he makes, that's part of politics, it's all about the mixture of leadership, compromise, and timing. And (as I've said before) I think it will then be the duty of all progressives to speak up, to help Obama have a balanced playing field in which to make decisions.  (He can handle our dissent -- he's good at that.)

    But for now, what a celebration! What a way to start a new Presidency and a new era for America!
