It's easy to blame Bush. Should we blame Cheney and Rice and Rove and the rest too? I'm happy to do that! Obama's second book, Audacity of Hope, is an easy read. He writes well, it's conversational but precise. Read it, then decide if you are still scared. I think you will relax when you've read that. He's not hot-headed, won't make rash decisions, will surround himself with wise and experienced people and then he will listen to them. It won't be perfect. But we won't keep going broke paying for a war that gives us nothing in return except "honored dead."
