Look at the mess “W” left for him to clean up:

Maybe, just maybe, this is the change we as a nation needed all along. A young, charismatic leader with grand ideas that just may work (depends on a lot of things, however, as Chaz constantly reminds me).

But, what do I know?
That’s all from where I sit.
