I'm waiting patiently for Obama to saunter out onto the dais and swear an oath to defend the US Constitution, to a god most people believe in but certainly doesn't exist. What can I say? If you put on CNN right now, you'll see about 3 million people talking and laughing and celebrating. Bush is not only leaving, but Obama is taking over. It's a wonderful day that I've been waiting for since the crushing reality of the 2004 election, which I did not think Bush would win at the time.
Linda and I have been big supporters of Obama for a long time, going back to the early days of the battle with Hillary. So this is sweet, I'm going to savor it without an ounce of cynicism. There will be time for that later.
Good luck, Obama.
