The great day is here. It’s been eight years since George W. Bush stole the presidency to begin his horrifically misguided adventures that opened for us the immense possibility of doing something entirely new and untried. It’s been two years since Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton began their improbable journeys by announcing their candidacies for the presidency of the United States. It’s been seven months since Barack Obama cinched the nomination. It’s been five months since Barack Obama received the nomination of the Democratic Party for president of the United States. It’s been two-and-a-half months since Barack Obama won the election. It’s been a month since the electors from the several states cast their ballots to fulfill their constitutional duties to make Barack Obama president. Today, we rid ourselves of George W. Bush. Today, Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States.
Good on us.
