One Good Thing About the Election Outcome
My most recent basis for that opinion is an interview with Sarah Palin, where she reports Obama, in a phone call, wishing her "luck--but not that much luck." A while earlier, I saw a news clip where Obama was discussing the question of what sort of a dog they were going to get for their daughters. He explained that this was a major issue, but there was a problem. They would like to get a puppy from a shelter, but one of his daughters had an allergy problem, so they needed a breed that was hypoallergenic. A dog from a shelter was unlikely to qualify since it would be "a mutt like me."
The general impression is not only that he is a competent speaker--most successful politicans are--but that he does not take himself too seriously.
And one bad thing? A President, House and Senate all held by the same party.
