the president today
Some comments from HuffPo...
"I'm trying to get a fix on this sense of well being many Americans are having in the midst of this financial chaos we all face. I think it might be related to having Barack Obama as president. A feeling of someone with brains and deep understanding at the helm. A feeling of having someone nudging his people to do the job right. A feeling of having a president fully engaged and not running on 'ideological autopilot'. A feeling of having someone at top who is working for us, ordinary people. It's a strange feeling after the past 8 years.
I think it might be the feeling of 'leadership' in America--after that vast vacuum of Republican rule."
"Obama has 80% approval rating in Canada. They love him, almost every other country loves him. It's so nice to have a beloved President instead of one they throw shoes at and hold protests for."
