Check out the different attitudes between Bush and Obama right after their elections:
Advertisements [?]
Obama was asked by a reporter today: What sort of mandate do you have, do you believe?"

Obama: We had a decisive win...and so I don't think there is any question we have a mandate to move the country in a new direction...But I won 53% of the vote, that means 46, 47% of the country voted for John McCain...It's important, as I said on election night, that we enter into the new admin. with a sense of humility and a recognition that wisdom is not the monopoly of any one party..."

Bush after his squeaker "win": I earned capital in this election and I intend to SPEND it."

How refreshing!
