FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY.

FINALLY, George W. Bush is no longer staining the underdesk of the Oval Office.

No, it'll be worse. We just wanted a change, any change would do. But people have pinned hopes so high on Obama that he'll never be able to fulfill them. He'll been too liberal while at the same time not be liberal enough.

I do honestly wish him well but he truly has an impossible mission.

I agree it will be extremely difficult for him to live up to the expectations and hopes placed on him. Its very hard for politicians to escape the lure of the gravy train, to avoid pragmatic policies that sacrifices principles and to not slip into a creeping hubris. I don't think it's impossible though.

I wonder if the real problem might end up being that it will be American people that don't have the will to see it through? His speech made it clear that any solution will only be found through sacrifice and effort, and I think he is right. The question then is perhaps not, will Obama pull it off, but will the lure of a careless fast food culture that sits on its but mean America wont pull it off. The whole point of 'yes we can' was surely that together people can effect incredibly change. That, in the end, is surely what is called for?

Together Obama and the American people have already accomplished something that even at the beginning of the election most considered impossible. So-just keep going.

We need our own Obama so desperately as well...
can I see one here? No. Not yet.

I think we need a complete clear out and spring clean of parliament before we will.
