As I’m sure most of you feel, I’m glad that all of the campaigning is over, although it was a pretty mild campaign with not alot of mudslinging. Both candidates are good, honest men. I think they actually like each other. A far cry from past elections. And this election, more than any other in years, has really united our country. Not only that, but I think our world image will greatly improve. The concession and acceptance speeches were awesome and I believe that Obama and McCain respect each other.
Thanks to Bush, Cheney and Rice, Obama has had a lot of crap dumped into his lap. Two wars, the economy, terrorism, immigration, etc. He will need time and support.
Here are three things that I think Obama needs to do before he is sworn into office:
1. Find an excellent White House Chief of Staff
2. Choose your Cabinet wisely… your Chief of Staff can help. It might even involve people from the Clinton adminstration. Don’t laugh!! Clinton was a jerk but his staff was good. Weren’t we better off then??
3. Reach out to our allies AND our enemies. I’m sure that our allies are already feeling better.
All of this should be done quickly.
I finally have hope for a real change in this country. But the main thing is, ‘Give Him Time’ to straighten out the mess that Bush left him with.
This song tonight (I’m sure I’ve played it before!) is for all of my wonderful, beautiful friends!! Please listen and enjoy! I have been trying to visit and comment but there are just not enough hours in the day. I will try harder.
Enjoy YOUR song!!
