Well, the American People have spoken-for good or ill. This country has reached a major milestone but President Elect Obama along with the Congress of the United States are inheriting a huge mess. Come January 21st, America will have put aside its idealism and will be expecting results. For the moment at least one important thing has been accomplished: we can look every other country in the world square in the eye and say we are indeed the land of opportunity where anyone regardless of race, color or creed can be President. That’s a powerful message.
