Of course, it takes more than one man to get the US (and the world) out of the messes (an epic financial crisis, $10 trillion national debt, a war without cause, and the climate change). In the US, the political system is designed to resist change. The Democrats still do not have a supermajority (3/5) in the Senate, which means the Republicans can be assholes and stop every new legislation. I can already imagine reading editorials titled “Yes We Can?” in a few months.

However unreasonable it is to expect politicians to suddenly start following their conscience, I am hopeful. For I believe it’s a defining moment of our generation taking ownership. No longer would we be characterized as the generation of complacency and apathy. A change is coming, not just because of the one man, but the millions like you and me that will stand up and shape the world with our ideals.

    i think even if concrete change isn’t immediate, as in we’re not going to see the financial crisis ending or world peace, this is still a major change in the social and humanities world, which makes me hopeful 🙂
