President Obama is the Best President in My Lifetime. [View all]

I don't post here much anymore, but I do visit a lot. I've been here since early 2001 -- in our darkest days -- and I just want to say to all of you who have worked so hard, posted with such fury and wisdom, and who have put their hearts, sweat, money and time on the line all these years should be proud of themselves. Stand back and take a little of it all in. It is majestic. We've won a lot back that we had lost. I thank you for it all.

And I also want to say that, in my own eyes, President Barack Obama is now the best American President of my life time (and I am a very old and progressive activist Democrat). Of course, he is not a perfect man, but he is a really good man. And a historic President on so many dimensions.

Better than John Kennedy? Better than Lyndon Johnson? Better than Jimmy Carter? Better than Bill Clinton? Yes.

While JFK has always been my gold standard up until now, I can with confidence say that America has never been in better hands than it is today.

What's even better?

I know that the best from this man, Barack Obama, is yet to come. Just watch. And be proud.

Put him and FDR on Mount Rushmore.
