From Today's New York Times

Op-Ed piece in NY Times:  NY Times' Bob Herbert 

Barack Obama goes beyond charisma,  and  8 years of Bush-Cheney delivered him to the Democrats' door.  In retrospect,  Bush may have been the best thing to happen to the Democrats in our lifetime:  He destroyed the GOP, and set it back decades. Our national reputation in Great Britain and in Europe has been cleansed and restored.  Barack Obama is not only young, handsome,  sexy,  vital,  and a profoundly talented orator:  He has substance,  courage,  idealsim,  and the administrative skill to implementation, and the character to stand behind his decisions.  By no means perfect,  he is yet the least flawed president which I have beheld in my lifetime.    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/24/opinion/24herbert.html?ref=todayspaper


"Transparency and Rule of Law will be the touchstone of this presidency."  ~President Barack Obama
