6. Wonderful! I love that idea. We need someone equally great for
the FDA, too. Too many trials based on stem cell research have been denied by the RW FDA.

I'd love to see him head up the EPA.

10. I still struggle to comprehend the idea of putting the BEST person in

After so many years of counter-intuitive picks from the past (yeah!) administration.

I swear, one after another, it was the worst possible person for that job.

12. I cannot wait until we see what the whole cabinet will look like. I'm so excited
for that to happen. When does it usually occur? Does he wait until January or do the appointments trickle out before then?

13. I fully expect bad behavior and tantrums
at all those hearings. it will be interesting to see how many times they will threaten to fillabuster this session, they already broke the all-time record in the last one...

What an Obama presidency means. Thoughtful, intelligent, competent, reasonable people runing the government again. Doing good things for the good of the American people, not just those who kiss their ass and pony up mega-bucks for them.

Wow, that is refreshing.
