Compressing Reagan

"Are you better off now than you were four weeks ago ?"
- Barack Obama 9Oct2008

after 28 years, I'm not sure Americans are ready for a President who thinks before he acts. not only thinks, but wonders about what might go wrong, and incorporates the possibilities into the decision-making. and even more so, takes steps to prevent and/or minimize the chances of something not going as planned. to paraphrase/quote Dan Quayle in 1992, "If Obama governs half as well as he campaigned, the country will be just fine".

Obama 2008, the most farsighted, disciplined, and effective political campaign I've ever seen.
