President Obama?

It's looking that way.

I voted against Barack Obama because I believe in a strong military, lower taxes and smaller government. I'm for school choice and opposed to universal healthcare.

I never thought John McCain was the ideal candidate, but his views on these issues were closer to my way of thinking than Barack Obama.

But it seems my fellow Americans wanted change more than anything else.

Jimmy Carter was a Democratic President with a Democratic majority in Congress and we spent four years wearing sweaters and dealing with high inflation. I hope this isn't Jimmy Carter's second term.

I predict-- if Obama does win tonight-- that he will not be victorious four years from now. If he governs from the far left, as I suspect, then he won't prevail in the general election. If he governs from the center, he won't even win his party's nomination.

But, eight years ago, I went to bed with President Gore and woke up with President Bush. (Figuratively speaking, of course.) So, it ain't over 'til it's over.
