Obama Already On The Right Track

I hope that President-Elect Obama's silence on the Israel-Hamas conflict offers a look into his future administration. Keeping silent about events about which one has no clue is the beginnings of wisdom.

Barack Obama was elected as a symbol. He is a racial symbol to many, a progressive political symbol to some and to others simply a symbol of change in troubled times. Very few of Obama's voters know or care about his stands on Israel vs. Hamas, economics, auto bailouts, military tactics or anything else. They want him to go to the White House, look pretty and give articulate but inane speeches every now and again. He would be wise to indulge them.

The more time our new President spends playing shirtless basketball and the less time he spends actually doing anything of importance, the better off we will be as a country.
