Hm. I’m not really sad, per se. But then I don’t know that I was particularly excited or anything when Bush was sworn in. I mean there was that “yay for our team” feeling. But, really, it’s hard to feel much about something that is… nothing.
That’s a wierd thing to say – inaugurations are important. But nothing’s really happened yet.
I’m hesitant. I can genuinely say that I don’t think Obama’s going to do Great Things For Our Country.
I have some apprehension about what things Obama’s going to do. I know a lot of people will be cheering nearly everything Obama does and I’ll be among the like 8 people who don’t.
I’m hoping to be fair in my judgements, as I hope I’ve been fair in my judgements of Bush.
(Who I still like. Who I found disappointing in his second term. Who I think did a decently good job as President. The things I found disappointing are about the polar opposite of the things that others find disappointing. IOW – Gitmo? Fine by me.)
