I appreciate truly the historical significance of this Inauguration and watching this piece of our Nation's history isn't lost on me. But, I do not know if President Obama can possibly live up to the unrealistic expectations that have been placed (unfairly?) on him by our Country and the World. (He is, after all, a human being, not a god, exceptional though he may be).
Change can & will happen and I pray it takes our Nation to a better place than it is now, however if it doesn't happen instantly (which of course it won't) I believe many will be disappointed and angry.
Ok, politic-ing & faltering optimism over!
