Thanks, Mark Cuban

I agree, and I'm proud to be an American.

I didn't agree with some of Obama's plans, but more I was worried the Dems will swing things too far to the left, spend too much money. Can they be worse than the GOP has been in the last 8 years? Not sure, but they might try. I heard this morning on the radio that this is a golden opportunity for the Democrats if they can stick to the centrist model and not take too much advantage of their majorities.

I think Obama is the better leader. He's a better speaker, more charismatic, and he inspires people. I felt proud of McCain's concession speech last night, thought it was from the heart and it made me proud of him as a patriot and hero to the US. I think it confused the crowd who were looking for some way to bash Obama. But even though emotions welled up in me at hearing that speech, it was still stiff. It was rough, and you could see him struggling with emotions. That's probably how I'd speak as well, but it's not the steadiness, the polish, and the energy of an Obama, which is what the country can use.

I voted Libertarian for the President, which I think is like voting GOP without the right wing conservative crap and the church influences. I still wish they had done better, but with less than 1% of the vote, that wasn't a great showing. Perhaps I'll try to push them a bit more over the next few years and see who I can convert.

Other than that I was disappointed that more people didn't get thrown out of office. I was hoping for more judges to get launched in Colorado. I had the kids mark my ballot and try to kick everyone out of office, party ignored.

Still Mark Cuban has summed it up well. I don't agree with everything he writes, but I liked this one.
