No, I’m not referring to the Alice Cooper Song, but to what will likely prove a historic and much needed shift in Many Countries, not just this one.  It’s too soon to tell how effective Obama will be, but my hunch is he’ll prove as much a global leader as an American one, provided he chooses his cabinet wisely.  I suspect he will.

Either way, 8 years of poor leadership, naked greed, and a complete misuse of power are over.  But the damage done to our democracy is enormous, and the gap between rich and poor has been disgustingly broadened.  Opportunity wasn’t advanced except for a handful of the privileged; everyone else was ignored–an attitude that the Founding Fathers would have taken a dim view of.  We have a long way to go in cleaning up the mess, but at least now we can begin.
