...

president obama.

he won't be a magic panacea, but i honestly believe that he'll point us in a better direction than mccain would. i wasn't convinced that a mccain administration would do anything much differently from the bush administration. whereas, we're more likely to have wider access to health care under an obama administration. we're more likely to have a sharply progressive tax scheme under an obama administration. we're more likely to have new supreme court justices who won't eviscerate abortion rights under an obama administration. we're more likely to begin to repair our reputation abroad under an obama administration. nothing will happen overnight, of course, but there will be baby steps.

the election is over. i feel guardedly optimistic.
