We don't check HuffPo anymore, not since the AOL 'merger'. But occasionally, if something there is linked to something in blogs we do read, we can take a gander. For example, this. Agree or disagree?
We've written plenty in our headier, naive days, about expectations; about how maybe we refused to see what Rachel Maddow and others may have seen all along (Obama as corporate centrist, moderate, etc.); look where we came from to where we are; what Bush hath wrought (he enabled Obama's victory). We've talked about making history, albeit too briefly, and we've commented on America being an empire in decline. I guess at this point who cares whether we're right or wrong?
It's not easy being a leader, globally or in your everyday life. Like anything, you need to work at it; you need practice and patience to get better at something. 'You fight the fights you can win'; or, 'You fight the fights that need fighting'. Time to take a stand, set a goal, and get r done. See you out there.
