President Obama!

President Barack Obama looks so young to me, and he is so confident in the way of purity and wholeness.  We have a leader now who can think and speak and negotiate and who was honestly elected.  What a concept!

The New Yorker has a delightful "short" this week in The Talk of the Town.  Joan Kennedy Smith made a bet with a cab driver in January of 2008 that Obama would win.   He was so incapable of imagining that, that when she said she would give him $100.00 if he didn't win, and that if he did win, he, the cab driver, would drive her around Washington for a day, that he said he would drive her around all year if Obama was even nominated to be a candidate. 

Well, here we are, and she called to collect on her bet.  She said if he picks her up at the airport that will settle it.  It works for me. 

We all won on this one!!
