New Energy

We have the White House. An era of responsibility and accountability begins today. President Obama has already made bold moves (New York Times). I overheard a correspondent say that most of the Great Work done by previous presidents happens in the first year of his first term. Our new President seems to fully understand that his political capitol will likely never again be this abundant. The illegal prison in Cuba is closing; terrorist trials are reset; former President Bush's executive orders are all halted until full legal review can be completed; and the Joint Chiefs are asked to prepare a 16 month withdrawal plan for Iraq. It's noon on his first day.

I am giddy, I say giddy, with anticipation.
