It Feels Good

I start this post with the conclusion of the most recent column by Maureen Dowd in the NY Times:

“It’s a huge relief to be getting an inquisitive, complicated mind in the White House.

George W. Bush. decided there was no need to be president of the whole country. He could just be president of his base. Obama is determined to be president of as much of the country as possible.

We’re trading a dogmatic president for one who’s shopping for a dog. It feels good.”

Yep. It feels good. I think that euphoria started with the dramatic safe landing of the US Airways plane in the Hudson River. Everyone survived. Everyone. You have to take it as a sign. Clinton started with Waco and one attack on the WTC. Of course, W. had 9-11. Obama gets 155 people plucked off the wings of a plane in the Hudson River. How can you not feel good?

Not everyone is happy. Rush is whining and whining about how Bush didn’t get a fair shake. I suspect Rush is just a bit peeved that he didn’t get invited to that conservative dinner with Obama. I find it interesting (and telling) that talk radio has been completely excluded from the Obama dialogue. We’ll let History judge Mr. Bush. Right now, I just want him off to Texas and out of the way. He’s done enough damage.

Did you see the concert from the Lincolm Memorial on HBO today? More than 400,000 people turned out. Everyone feeling good, full of hope. Proud to be an American.

On Tuesday, for the first time in my life, I’ve made plans to celebrate January 20th. A group of us are going out for dinner to mark the day. To celebrate our hopes for the future.

KVEC will have complete coverage Tuesday morning of everything happening in D.C. Dr. Larry Martinez joins us Monday at 6 to preview what he expects will happen in this historic week.

It feels good. Actually, it feels great.
