Coming to the end

I've been an Obama supporter for more than four years now and have my blog to prove it. These last two years have been long, and now I'm reading articles now about the possible Obama administration. I don't want to jinx it, assume the win, but I am feeling a kind of nostalgia. I don't know what I expect from an Obama administration. I don't really expect change because we are talking about a huge machine that is not easily moved one direction after sliding slowly into the ditch for the last eight years. I'm not holding my breath for a second New Deal Still, I believe in all the rhetoric, that our country can pull ourselves out of a hole. Maybe we can make progress on health care and education. Maybe we can get the hell out of Iraq. Or maybe for the next week or so we can relax and enjoy this, the improbability of it all, that we might have a president named 'Barack Hussein Obama'. How cool that would be. Maybe there are things we can still be proud of in our little democracy...
