    I looked at the election as basically a much needed apology from Americans to the rest of the world, a humble begging to be allowed back into the community of nations.

    Of Obama I expect very very little, he being a politician and a Democrat, after all. The only thing I beg is that he not be too awful.

    So far he hasn't been too awful. And I am committed to waiting and seeing, and being receptive, open-minded.

    I like the Napolitano and Volcker picks. Not so happy about Clinton, Emmanuel or Gates. Sort of evens out.

    I am cautiously optimistic, while expecting nothing. Democrats are like taxes, unions, shaving, or even life itself: they suck, but the alternatives are unthinkable.
