5. I honestly think that some, unfortunately, don't want him to succeed.
It makes me sad to think that this is the case, but I'm finding evidence of this each and every day.

I can't believe that after 8 years of having a President that never, ever surprised me by doing the right thing, some are willing not to even give this incoming President a chance at trying.
