I for all but one right...

The American people elected Obama; therefore, the American people deserve Obama. Yee-haa.

I suppose it is time to embrace the situation with all the dignity we can muster--like it or not, Obama WILL be our president for the next four years.

Besides, there's no point in raining on the parade of all the people who are so very happy about it, and it's in everybody's best interest that he do a supremely good job...

I was 10 for 10 though I was iffy for number 9. I assumed it was Biden but only by elimination and not because I really knew.

except for the fact that Sarah Palin basically said that she could see Russia from her backyard-it may have been an exaggeration but it was a slight one, you saw the Charlie Gibson interview? where she equated Alaska's proximity to Russia to her having foreign policy experience?

however, saying that Obama started his political career in Ayer's living room is a rather large exaggeration-if you had ever attended (or planned) such an event you would understand that often the hosts are rarely close friends, or acquaintances, but more often just supporters-in fact, i attended an event for obama hosted by a woman that had never met him or knew him

when you consider that one of the much discussed boards that Ayers and Obama served on together was for the Annenberg Foundation-the founder of which is a BIG McCain supporter. guess that means McCain pals around with terrorists too...oh wait. McCain actually does hang around with what could easily be considered terrorists. that doesn't make him a terrorist either
