SUPER!!! I'm hearing great reports from friends all over the country so maybe this will be one of the "good" years.

Patrick likes the program and the school but continues to contend that the "Dad, 65% female enrollment!" had nothing to do with the final decision to go to the school. I told him of course it didn't, it's all about education and that if he picks the right one of those 65% he can get a real education. Besides, I was 20 once, too. ;-):cool:

what do y'all who are complaining now wish he would do? would you feel better if he surrounded himself with a bunch of no-name politicians with little experience? just wondering.

Seems like it might be time to tap into our private sector. There are, surely, captains of industry who have made companies successful without the raping and pillaging done by the sleezy ones in the headlines so often.

We seem to forget that there are honorable people in private industry who are also successful at solving problems. There are also some brilliant minds in the academic world. If Obama makes it a point to solicit the advice of these people as well, (and actually using the good stuff that comes from them) then it might be easier to believe that the "good ole boys" will not just continue as usual.
Perhaps bringing in people without ties to getting re-elected is, indeed, the kind of change needed. It might be tougher at first to convince the "pork rollers" that he meant business about fresh ideas and insights, but if it became evident that he would stick to serving the country as a whole, that might really be a change.
Hillary Clinton as Sec. of State? Convince me that wasn't a political debt that came due.
