mickey and i cracked into a nice bottle of wine last night to celebrate -- but what? obama coming in? w leaving? both are sweet. here's what i hope to happen in the coming four years:
1. return to collaboration and diplomacy with other countries
2. a continuation of the all-inclusiveness that has pervaded obama's campaign and inauguration, making every american feel he or she is part of something, invited to participate
3. a renewed commitment to 21st century thinking around technology, science, medicine, human rights and equality
4. removal of arrogance, ego, entitlement and cronyism
5. health for ted kennedy
most of all, i'm hoping we continue to have hope.
