President Abraham Lincoln would be proud.

A glimpse of how Cambridge feels today:

I don´t know if too much euphoria could lead to "mania" and then pernicious side-effects (unfulfill expectations) because things are tough.

Neverthless, Viva Obama!

i'd admit the guys a good preacher, but how can people really expect him to be the superhero they make him out to be. i mean he could read at a funeral and people will still get spurred up if he used that tone of voice.

Yeah, I second that.

Voice, words, looks. Americans just love an act. Give them anything to believe in. Even illusions.

Ok, that said, gotta give him a chance sans that public mask...

I really don't get the hype. It's kind of over done. Kenya has like an entire public holiday dedicated to him. Coming soon: obama beer, obama au de parfum, obama hairspary, obama diagnostic set. . .
I say good for him but doubt he's going to save us all.

You should also change your banner. I reckon a picture of Big Ben will substitute the Chaples behind you perfectly...

Nice post and very useful information to share with the readers that's cool,i was wondering if any of you could tell me how a surgeons life is in terms of social life?

Just found your blog (27 Jun 09) but I have to disagree. Lincoln would probably roll in his grave knowing what Obama is proposing and has gotten through.

Thank goodness - the American people are realizing that the "Emperor has no clothes."
