President-Elect Obama has good leadership skills

It is amazing to see a good leader at work. The President-elect has done most things right since the election. He has done some risky things like risk the wrath of Latinos (by not picking Richardson for State) for the sake of doing the right thing. Obama has been remarkably newliberal in his approach. Everything he has done seems to be thought out, and his best judgement.

I hope this extends to policy, especially education. There is no way a person as smart as Obama, and one who took his time finding the best schools for his children doesn't know that vouchers are the American way to solve the education problems.

Also, I hope Obama stands up to the etreme left wing on the culture wars and stands with the American people.

Whether it is abortion, gay rights, degradation of tradition, etc. Obama should help establish our Democratic Party not only as safe to be trusted to govern, but the best vehicle to actually promote what's right.

Instead of pondering about about a college football playoff, he should insist that the commercials during college football games are appropriate for all family members, especially if they are watching with the whole family.

This is a great time to be a Democrat. It will take discipline to make it work though, because the expectations from the looney left are over the top and ever-present.

It's a shame we need their votes to win.
