i haven't given up yet, sometimes you learn more from a good scar than from good advice, and i think the US will do the same. All things equal its very hard for a 8 year party to continue another 4 years, so a democrat winning was not that unpredictable.

I think the media will turn on him now that he's in office, the last i looked, the stock market is sinking big time today, and this is due to what the investors see down the road (6 Months). They predict obama moving or governing from the center, his track record as a senator doesn't prove that, but things change when you got the ball, i think he's a liberal like jimmy carter was and he's going to spread misery evenly to everyone.

Maybe this lost will make the GOP rethink its strategy and run on conservative values in 4 years instead of this moderate bipartisan approach, conservatism and the values that our fathers built this country on still means something, this country is crying for a REAGAN type of politician

Do you think Barack Obama has the necessary qualities to be President?

Absolutely more qualified than GWB, McCain or Palin

Especially if Obama can do something about that pesky Constitution he finds so fundamentally flawed.

Obama is a Stooge for the Democratic Party, He has no qualifications for President, He has done nothing in his very short career in the US senate, thought he is surrounding himself with allot of Clinton People, must be driving those young college liberals with no knowledge of what the real world is all about, they will when they get out there in the real world and run into a boss that will use them to make a buck and if they don't perform and play the game they will be gone,maybe they will go cry to their Liberal college professors. Just fired 3 Obama supporters for not playing the game, I guess they got a swollen head over the election and decided to through 3 to 5 years out the window, 2 came back crying the blues about their families and the holidays,I laughed and told them they should have though about that before they decided to no longer play the game. The GAME are my rules, they need money and I have it. Welcome to the real world.

67 million people voted for Obama due to the economy, his own campaign admitted that, out of desperation, when he cant deliver on all those promises will see how fast they turn on him, other than the college students, which don't amount to anything in this society until they get out into the real world and accomplish something. The only people to get this economy out of this problem is the private sector, and that will take time in years, Obama and the democratic congress will keep printing money and the heads of these major companies will be there with their hands out and they will get money, free money they don't need to get their companies out of trouble,Capitalism is great, the rich get richer and the poor will get poorer. After printing all this money and the value of the dollar declines and the recession deepens, he will lose in 4 years as Jimmy Carter lost, remember 21 per cent interest rate, college kids excluded, you were still in diapers if you were even on this earth, and he will go down as one of the worst presidents, and that is too bad,especially for the first black president. IF he was a smart guy, he would have passed on this year election and have somebody else fail, and come back in 4 years win and go down in history as the first Great black president.

BO being elected unfortunately shows the general population is no longer capable of a democratic republic. The Founding Fathers warned of this. We know have an "American Idol" president. Adams in particular wrote of the character qualities of public office. He warned of men like BO. They were afraid this would happen it is why originally Senators were not elected, but chosen by State legislators and why we have electoral college. It is not about ideas, but character and experience. BO has neither, there were far more qualified Democrats. I truly hope for the sake of the country he does well, but have little hope. I fear for my childrens futures. So noone thinks I have any great love for GWB, I take issue with many of the things he's done, but not in the vein of conventional wisdom.

ABSOLUTELY! He certainly has more on the ball than GWB did! The past 8 years proves that!

Since Obama has not served as President yet, and apparently did absolutely nothing as a U.S. Senator for 180 days, or as an Illinois legislator, what do you base your hypothesis on, that he will do a better job?

What track record of Obama are you aware of that no one else has been able to find? Please let us know. The world wonders.

He's a qualified motivational speaker and role model. He's NOT qualified to president.

Obama supporters shouldn't feel that bad. I was in bookstore today, and thumbed through several of the new books about Obama. I couldn't find a single one that knew anything about what he had done that would qualify him to be President, either (or one that said one single thing about him or his family before he was ten years old). Go figure.

They're saying if Obama's borrow/spend idea doesn't work, our economy will collapse in two years.

Man, It's weird to hear a president with such a command of the English language. I guess I have been "Bushified". I kind of liked the tripped up euphemisms of our former figurehead.

I don't know, but maybe having a smart president Isn't such a bad thing. I know bush was fun loving and a "living in the now" kinda dude, but that ***** didn't really work out. It does suck that we will be respected by countries we were taught to hate.

Leave link cold please
I very much dislike, and do not trust Obama, that being said, he has a much more powerful presence than McCain had. McCAin seemed weak, old. BUT, I CAN'T STAND OBAMA'S Agenda.

Whether or not he is qualified is a mute point now. He is in there and we will just have to wait and see. I personally am not a fan of him. But you can't judge him with one week. You can however place your opinion on his history. We will see

One quick observation at this point that I would like to bring up concerning trust and placing ours in him is this:

He has stated that there will be NO lobbyists in his white house, that they are forbidden from working there if the were once a lobbyist, yet he has hired TWO of them to high office positions and the response from his group is that there needs to be room to work inside the scope of these rules, that all rules should have room for exceptions. Think about that if you took or still take his word for what it's worth. Scares me already that he is going back on his word.

They don't understand because they are not true gun people. They are satisfying their macho ego and making a fashion statement. But their leader Hussein will shortly put a crimp in their act.

No. But he can grow into the job.
He lacks experience and gravitas. But develop these things, he will.
