An Historic Day…

Today the United States will inaugurate our first African-American President. For that, I am proud.

But I am also a bit cynical.

We are also inaugurating the first President-elect that rather than hold to the precedent of being in the background between Election Day and the Inauguration, has instead decided to co-opt the presidency, while continuing to repeat an empty mantra of “there is only one President at a time”.

We are also inaugurating the first President-elect who has not only been already polled, but whose poll numbers are being touted by the media. And he has yet to perform any duties as President.

I am a bit cynical.

But I am also hopeful. Hopeful that my cynicism can be dissipated by real bipartisan action, not talk, and that Obama can come even remotely close to the media’s portrayal of him.

Only time will tell.
