I agree, he is a very polished and well spoken individual. It's nice to have a respectable president again.

Obama does not have "socialist tendencies," he has a prescription for America's ailing. It is a far, far cry from socialism.

But in reality, nothing will really change... it never does. He won't follow through on all of his promises, but then again, who does? His cabinet will be moderately democratic, and he is a smart man who will make decisions in the best-interest of the country, not just in the best interest of his "liberal socialist agenda."
Agreed, Good post!

Did you see how many people were excited and crying tears of joy last night, not only in this country but around the entire world? That is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Millions of citizens of this world said that they wish they were Americans because of this. This shows that any American can really become President if they apply themself. Now when a parent tells their child one day they could become President it is the truth.

I know that many great Americans were smiling down from Heaven last night. Such as Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, and John F. Kennedy as well as this country's founding fathers.
I'm not going to lie it got me choked up too. I think its hard to say that his story isn't inspiring no matter what your beliefs are.

Many people don't like change, but regardless of how anyone feels about it history was made last night.
