The United States of America is the last, best hope for the entire planet and, for that very salient reason, I wish no ill on the Obama Administration for, if they fail, we fail and I fail. I cannot help but think, however, that tonight, when in bed and looking at Michelle he says something similar to: "And now look what I've done."

The road ahead is naught but filled with strife and holes. Even with a so-called "perfect president" (and there is no such thing) the road would be horrendous.

I can only wish good portents for our President Obama. He will need every break this country can acquire. And yes, it was an history-making event in terms of the first black president elected. Granted.

I'll reserve my right to adjudge this administration on a case-by-case basis. However, recent Obama predilections indicate this nation's freedoms of expression, both written and spoken, may possibly be infringed. And that is good for no one at all.

America is the wonder of the rest of the world; our transition of power is one good reason. We have the patience to see our side loose, give the other guy another chance and carry on..winner or loser. Quite remarkable, isn't it?

As we all say and believe: America, the great Experiment In Progress -- and the last, best, greatest hope of the entire planet.

Sparky, beautiful ! I wish I felt that magnanimous..i'm REALLY trying, then I remember his flipping people off in public and lying about knowing Ayers, never walking out on Wright. I wish i could get past that stuff. But, then, there would be so much new stuff to bear.I'm trying.........really.

FOX was the only channel that carried Bush's speech upon his arrival back home in TX. I found that so sad. I wish him and the wonderful First Lady Laura all the best.....for many years to come.

And I wish us luck. God bless America. PLEASE>

I heard many liberal Democrats and some foreigners saying to reporters in DC how special the American transition of power is, that it happens like this no where else.

And these are the same people who deny American exceptionalism.
