, Wil, I am very optimistic about Obama ! The Democratic presidents since JF Kennedy have been a disappointment. I was optimistic about Clinton, but he ruined his second term, and legacy, because of his ego. I am hoping Obama has the strength of character to be great. Time will tell. But it is not going to be easy. It will take time for our economy to recover. Might take many years. That is why I am hoping that Obama will make progress on racial equality during his admin.
