The election is now over and we have a new President getting ready to take office in January.
Please post your predictions/expectations of the coming four years. Try to include time lines in your post and we will see how accurate the forum members are at predicting the events of the next four years.
1) I am hoping that the Republican party will take a good long look at itself and realize that we are no longer living in the 1950's. The nuclear family is dead and it is high time for the Republicans to understand this and move on. Family values is no longer mom, dad and 2.4 kids. A family is any close knit group of individuals who look after each other and care for those in the group who need to be cared for (kids and elderly).
2) I am hoping that the Democrats realize that Obama was elected on a ticket of change that translates to "stop all the partisan bickering and obstructionism and get some shit done!" Towards the end Obama moved toward the center and that is where he should govern from. If the Democrats try to go too far to the left and run rough-shod over the Republicans we will see a repeat of 1994.
3) I am hoping that pissed off Republicans do not emulate the actions of pissed off Democrats. I did not like seeing the "he's not my president" bumper stickers on Democrat cars and I don't want to see them on Republican cars either.
Damn... lunch hour is up...
