Cowboy Competent

He seems competent. I think we have elected a man who will not be flashy, who won't shoot from the lip and who won't overreact.

Nice change.

I thought Charles Krauthammer said it really well: "In Obama, we get a President with the political intelligence of Bill Clinton harnessed to the steely self-discipline of Vladimir Putin."

The speech was a case in point. I was waiting for that rousing moment, the "Ask NOT what your country can do for you", but it never came. I'm not disappointed, though. "Time to get up, dust ourselves off and get back to work" is what we need to do in this country right now.
