Best Wishes, Mr. President-Elect
November 7, 2008
Well, I would have preferred McCain-Palin, but I wish President-Elect Obama all the best. I want him to be successful. This is, after all, a time of international and financial crises.
And, it must be said, that whatever your politics, the election of a black man to the highest office in the land just fifty years removed from Jim Crow is a grand event. That race had nothing to do with his victory is even better. Once again, the United States shows the rest of the world why we are such a great country.
Based on Obama’s record, I fear that he will be a doctrinaire liberal. I hope that he governs as a centrist. And since this election was based on hope….
