I'm glad we've got a new president whose got a lot of promise at least. Let's just hope he can and will deliver. I didn't vote that way, but all I can do is hope for what everybody seems to be expecting out of the new President.

The right wingers are sore losers. They need to get over it. They lost. Try again next time.

Now that Obama is President, it sets a dangerous precedent for other non-Americans to be elected. Since Obama never proved he wasn't born outside the country, it leaves the door open. Mugabe '12! [/redical right wing moron mode]

Sadly, if he were white, America's far right would love Robert Mugabe.

Heh-heh.. those crazy redstaters and their wacky ideas! They probably have their tinfoil hats on firmly now.

True enough..he'd be Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage's wet dream, I think...Ann Coulter would want to have his love child. :) (it seems a brutal, fascist dictator is the ideal leader for many right wingers).

Just go to "Rants and Raves" on Craigslist for any red city/state and you'll see all the idiocy.

Ann Coulter holds that special place in my heart - she's on that short list of about 3 people who I think I could strangle with my bare hands with no remorse.

You better believe it! And I won't be leaving the house for the next four years either! Just kidding, but if Obama had lost every single one of you would be just as upset as many people are that he won.

At least Obamas birth certificate was likely written in paper. When McCain was born paper wasnt even invented yet. Why some people would have wanted more of the same with McCain is still a mystery to me but to each their own. I hope that Obama can at least get the wheels turning on some economic reforms. People have to have jobs in order for this country to survive. We cannot make it just on the rich. REAGONOMICS hasnt worked!!!!

Doubtful, because today still would have signified Bush leaving office, which thrilled a lot of people, many of whom aren't too crazy about Obama.

No, I wouldn't have been that upset because I would just be happy that Bush was gone. I would have been hopeful that McCain would return to being the man he was in 2000 and the campaign he ran was just pandering to get elected.

Was that really necessary?

I didn't mean it sardonically.

(Please excuse the following rant as I don't mean to pin-point any one person, but a group as a whole: the American citizens.)

However, from the "outside looking in" (i.e. I'm not one of the followers of "change" -- change in what?), the "movement" or whatever it's being called with Obama as the messiah, or king, of his followers looks just like the Lion King to me. All these people are following something that is believed to be the next big thing. All I hear is "Obama: The Future of Change" or something ridiculous like that. I mean, you look at some people, and it's almost cult-like. They're making a freakin' pajama line after him. People are getting their hair cut (which was previously known as a #2 buzz) and calling it "The Obama."

I mean, seriously, are you kidding me? The guy has no credibility in his position yet. He was Senator but has done nothing major yet. I can guarantee that some would already say he's the best President ever, and he hasn't even held the king's crown for 2.5 hours.

Americans picked the celebrity who spoke best, carried the more popular face, and made the headline in more magazines. That's who America is now, and I give Barack credit for taking full advantage of that. He wasn't elected into this position based mainly on what he's done and what he can do; most Americans voted for Obama's tagline because it read exactly what we need: change. He's a national icon because he made himself be. He's a "normal" guy in the lead role of the United States of America. Now seriously, I'm not going to play the Republican role here... this is exactly what Palin tried to do, but she entered way too late and had a smaller role as VP. She related herself to the public being a young, normal hockey mom from a small town. She would've had more support if her stupidity wasn't so exploited. You and I know just from what we see in the auto industry that the media will show what they want and exaggerate it to its fullest. What we read in every newspaper and magazine were the extremes. From how stupid and terrible a mom Palin is (as if she had control of her daughter's body to not get pregnant) to how great Obama is because of whatever factors. It's all out there, and you won't read a single flaw about Obama in any publication. Well, God knows that every man has his flaws, so where were they being exploited? I'm not mad that they haven't shown his flaws, but for something so huge for our entire nation, we don't need to show one's ultimate flaws in comparison to another's ultimate strengths and then tell the People to vote on that.

Okay, I skipped around a bit in frustration, but what this has to do with the Lion King is quite simple: the entire nation "knew" what the next big thing was going to be, so they supported it. Every animal crowded around and awaited their new king to be born so the nation could grow with him. Once born, he grew quickly and was to assume the nation's lead role after going through a huge depression. Hopefully the outcome is the same for our country as it was in Disney's film where the King comes through and gives the nation rebirth.

Yeah, it has nothing to do with rational policy proposals or a basic understanding of the Constitution.

For you and others on this site, yes it probably does. C&G is a pretty knowledgeable and intelligent group.

However, go to Walmart and find the average American buying the latest Obama book and ask him or her why Obama is so great...

I think I would have been quite dissapointed had McCain/Palin won. I can't stand the conservative BS, 20 out of the last 28 years of it was enough to ruin the country, IMHO. Their failed ideology is a large part of the cause of the mess the country is in now, IMHO. I'm optimistic for postive change now. McCain would have been the same old, same old....

Are you serious?

The Whitehouse website has already been updated with his agenda and gives a lot of details. It is well thought out, comprehensive, and inclusive. We can see the direction he wants to take us in. Even if he can only accomplish part of this list it is still a major step forward for this country.

Just looking at how efficiently he has put together the new cabinet and executed the transition. The unknown black man with the funny name out maneuvered the biggest names in today's political game. He raised more money and had more people involved than any candidate ever. I'm not worried about his ability to get things done.
