Are you feeling more patriotic?
The last time I felt good about this country was when John Kennedy was elected. With the election of Obama, I can actually manage to say that I am proud to be American. The fact that we finally elected a black person is fortunate, but I don’t find myself as moved by this as others. I am more interested in Obama the person than in Obama the black person. I love hearing him talk about replacing military action with diplomacy and about our shared responsibility for improving things. We will see how well he lives up to the promise.
