It seems likely that Obama will be the President-elect. He will as such be MY President. I will most likely disagree with virtually every policy the man proposes. I will also most likely hate the direction he wants to take the country. But he will nonetheless be my President. The office he holds will retain my respect, regardless of my opinions of the man who holds it. I hope and pray that my opinions of the man are completely wrong. I hope that he makes me look like an idiot by actually improving the country rather than damaging it further. In short, my hopes and prayers go with the man. And in the inimical words of Forest Gump, "that's all I have to say about that".
