January 20, 2009


MLK, FDR, JFK, Abe, George and Springsteen, all rolled into one! No human can live up to the hype. As GWB can tell you, hype doesn't matter as you are leaving, what people said up front, the confetti and front page stories go away, and what one accomplished is all we will remember. Prognosticating by the press and pontificating by frontmen are out, the game is on! Also, much of the celebrating today is the fact that GWB is leaving, that adds to the circus atmosphere.

I agree -- it's what happens after the party is over that matters. I just hope people don't expect too much too soon. This is going to take a while.
