I know the odds are good Obama will win, but I’m still cautious. That’s in part because I was over-confident in 2004 when I felt certain Kerry would win. And since then, I’ve seen other evidence I’m not all that good at predicting political outcomes. So I’m being cautious this year. Is anyone else feeling cautious?
Despite my caution, I’ve been wondering this morning what kind of president Obama will make — assuming he wins. Will he be more of a centrist than a progressive? Will he unite the country? Will he be able to get his programs through Congress? How rapidly and efficiently will he be able to clean up the messes left by Bush? Will he restore our Constitutional protections? Will he keep his major campaign promises? How fast will he move to implement his ideas? And, perhaps most important, what will be his policy on erotic dancers?
