From the land of Lincoln, Obama announces

Unless you have been living in a cave with no cable access, Obama's presidential announcement is not news. He chose Springfield, Illnois because that was the land of Abe Lincoln. He too, lacked experience but went down in history as one our greatest presidents.

I have to admit, he is a rock star. What concerns me is his lack of a resume'. In spite of his lack of experience, he was bright enough to see what most of did. This war was and is wrong. Hence the struggle.

For sanity, once a week I try to hang out at a local Drinking Liberally. The group is an eclectic mix of bloggers, educators, lawyers, contractors, and consultants. The sighting of a Democrat running for something is the norm.

The thread that links this gang, is the love of their country. All were very active in the elections.

The presidential election is the topic of conversation. I was not surprised at the collective contempt for Hillary. I was floored as to how many embraced Obama because of his lack of a track record. The fans of Obama only see a Senate record as an anchor versus a sail.

Time will tell.
