The new starter

January 20th, 2009 § 4 comments

Apparently someone starts their new job today.

You’ll excuse me if I don’t get too excited about it. It may be historic in that this will be the first black president of the United States, but that’s it isn’t it? What other way is this special?

Don’t get me wrong, I think Barak will be a better president that the previous effort, but I’m not really expecting anything too radical. After all, in any established political system there are vested interests that do not like change, and to get any sort of meaningful change Mr Obama is going to need more than just the support of the Democrats. the Republicans need to be in on it too. Is that going to happen.

President Obama may be a good guy, but before we all start pissing our pants in anticipation for the saviour of the free world, I think I hang on and see how much to the left he wants to go and how much he is allowed to go.
