I had high hopes for President Obama when he was first elected.

More class and less “ass.” I love it! What we must never forget is how difficult it must’ve been to try to run a country with your hands tied behind your back. The Republican Old Guard said, out loud, that their job throughout his time in office was to ensure that he got nothing done. And now that he’s leaving, they’re going to ensure that the little he did do is dismantled. Obama the man, for me, is extraordinary just for riding the wave of rancor so gracefully, while realizing that much of what he intended to do was never going to be even remotely possible. No mean feat, to swallow your ego and smile at those cameras.
