  •  I understand the disagreement. (0+ / 0-)

    And, I believe it's our responsibility to disagree and question. But could we please give the guy a chance? I mean can we wait until he's inaugurated and see how some of this plays out before we give up on him?

    I'm remembering the campaign and all of the doubters who wanted him to fight back, go after Palin and her faith, etc. Through all of that I learned to trust his judgment.  That's not blind faith; it's pragmatic reality.  He has a proven history of making good decisions.

    I'm more interested to see how he adapts and changes course when there is a missed opportunity or bad decision.  That's the test of a true leader.

    If Gates proves to be bad for the country because he will not effectively implement the Obama defense agenda, then let's see how our new president deals with it.

    Meanwhile, I will continue to ask questions, but I'm hopeful it will be in a constructive conversation.
