I worry that Obama will stretch himself thin.
I love that Obama has the guts and knowledge to get involved in a lot of issues. He's talked about reforming the BCS, gotten involved in the Republic workers situation, engaged the governors, reforming Cuba relations, wearing a union made tux for the inaugural, etc. A lot of this is untraditional territory for the modern president. Most presidents don't get involved in minor issues and causes. I love that Obama is doing it but I worry that he might stretch himself thin. He's going to need a hell of a Cabinet to be able to pull all this stuff together if he's going to work at this pace. He's also bound to get burned along the way by taking on so much. Either way, I love his work ethic and I hope he can keep it up.

1. That is worrisome...
...given how thin he is already.

2. That is why he has the big guns as cabinet picks and a VP, he needs all the help he can get
He has a lot to do and is ambitious but I am so glad he is engaged. Bush chose not to care.
