The Presidential Election

Politics on a weblog is like picking up a stick of old, wet dynamite.  You might grab it and absolutely nothing happens, or it might very well explode in your face.  It is for this reason that I try to avoid political discussion on prefrontal.org.  Every weblog must have a focus, and there are more than enough political blogs to go around.  Still, I am compelled to write just one post after the recent presidential election.  One post to say how much I have been desperately hoping for a new direction in our political system.  One post to tell you how much of that hope I have invested in one man.  One post to announce that I worked hard to help that man be successful.  One post, to tell you that he was in fact successful.

Congratulations, President-elect Barack Obama.
