I’ve read the highlights and I think people are too optimistic on the one hand and overly dramatic on the other. It’s not going to save too many in the short run but Americans count their victories one person at a time anyway. It’s always been “what’s good for the few the many should just learn to accept” in the land that thinks it’s the most free, the most advanced, the most civilized, the most compassionate and yet probably wouldn’t make the top ten in any of those categories.

I haven’t watched an empire’s sun set since the U.S.S.R faded like a pastel house in Florida, but let’s pause and give Obama his one shining moment, shall we?
