While it's hard to feel as excited or as hopeful as I did four years ago, I sincerely hope that the next four years see a fearlessness in the leader of the free world as he tries to make lasting changes to create a legacy we can all be proud of. Oratorically Obama has sounded less willing to be beaten about by politically sound career moves and instead take a stand for the things he believes in. I know more than a few Liberals--and Conservatives--who think this will reveal his true "radicalism," but they're wrong. Obama is not and never has been a radical. Bt I do believe he's a man who believes in doing right, and that he probably feels a little freer to do so now that he'll never have to face a public vote to get or retain a job.
The changes he seems committed to making aren't radical; they're right, and just, and long delayed. It's about time.
