The election is over and Barack Obama is the President-Elect. Surprisingly, I didn’t feel as emotional as I expected. More than anything I was glad that it’s over and I’m very happy that Obama was elected — not because he’s black, but because I think he was the best man for the job in comparison to McCain. Then reality quickly set in. Obama is inheriting a pile of crap and I’m still out of a job. I’m not expecting a miracle or anything from government, but I’m hopeful that movement in the right direction will happen and I’m hoping the economy improves well enough that all of us who want to work have good paying jobs to go to. We’ll see how it goes. I imagine, though, it’s going to be a tough slog out of this hole.
