I hope that all of Hillary Clinton’s supporters, John Edwards supporters such as myself, Joe Biden’s supporters, Governor Richardson’s supporters – Democrats one and all will now do the hard work necessary to defeat John McCain and bring Senator Obama into the White House as president.
That all being said, President Obama will have a worse mess to clean up after George W. Bush even than Governor Deval Patrick inherited from Governor Mitt Romney…and there will be no magic wand waiting on Capitol Hill just as there was no magic wand waiting on Beacon Hill.
To become President, Senator Obama will NEED our help; to govern well, President Obama will still need our help — just as Governor Patrick continues to need citizens who care and are informed as partners, in order to clean up the mess left behind by 16 years of anti-government by Republicans in Massachusetts.
George W. Bush has left trillions in debt facing our children, and our armed forces spread so thin that their families have to buy them body armor. The tasks facing President Obama are great – a war with no end or boundaries, an economy sinking under toxic policies and globalization, and climate change.
