The Inauguration is over, the ball has been danced, the food has been eaten and excess taken to charities to feed the homeless. Now, today, Barrack begins getting out his big ass snow shovel that he had in Chicago and digging our country out from under the shite storm that Dubya let rain down on us.
I've never been a terribly political person, but the longer I've lived in Chicago, the more I've paid attention to what's going on around me. I'll be the first to admit that, while I'm not a single cause political mind, there is one issue that I tend to think of that is more defined by the parties than grand things that eventually fall on both parties. However, over the past 8 years. I've come to find myself being more watchful. It dawned on me that while I feel like I've been in Chicago a long time, I didn't have a sense of time for how long Bush was in his presidency. Bush was elected right after I moved to Chicago. So while my time in Chicago has been fantastic, it will be interesting to see how it will feel with a Chicagoan at the helm of the country.
Barack baby, you go get 'em!
And by the way Texas.....
