President-Elect

We still have Obama fever at our house. Perhaps you have it, too? It’s that smile that hasn’t left your face since November 4, the one you see reflected on the face of the cashier at Whole Foods, on the faces of your co-workers, on the faces of the people you pass on the street. Young and old, African-American and white. It’s really tremendous.

I watched Obama’s press conference today and felt excited (and since when are presidential press conferences exciting?). I mentioned to Rob how I might just had a crush on our new President-Elect, and he sent me this blog post from the American Prospect. I love it, and it made me realize that I don’t really have a crush on Barack Obama–I have a crush on hope.
