He's going to need bipartisan help. I quit posting in P&R until after the election, true to my word. I believe the person with more potential has won, while I'm well aware that opinions vary. I think Obama will be much more centrist than many have claimed running up to the election. This would be consistent with his performance after being elected to President of The Harvard Law Review, where he disappointed the more liberal members of the Review. Our country faces great challenges, so put aside the immature and petty bickering, reserve the childish racism, give him a chance to succeed while genuinely hoping that he will. When Obama spoke, he tamped down the boos of McCain or Bush (even Cheney). He spoke of the future and not the past. The time for past bitterness is over. Unite behind the President to be, and stop with the outlandish attacks of Marxism, Socialism, Terrorism, etc. Obama loves this country as does Biden (and McCain and Palin, also). We sink or swim together.
