…eight years too late.
No, really. It would have been far, far better for everyone if at his inauguration, instead of taking the oath, he had said “become President? No, I was only joking” and then left for Tahiti or something.
Heck, it would have even given him a better “legacy” than he has now.
Now we have President Obama. I don’t want to get my hopes up too high (though the hope of “I hope he’s better than Bush” is an easy one – a concrete block wall would be better than Bush…), but it’s just possible that he’s going to be one of those Presidents that future generations look back at as a “Great” President.You know, one of the ones students actually remember the name of rather than have to look up.
We’ll see. He’s starting off right – putting a hold on a bunch of last-minute Bush legislation – but we’ll see. I’m tentatively hopeful.
