Puppies and sunshine - random thoughts

Based on the collective swooning from my esteemed colleagues here at the university, I am fully expecting to see the sun break through the clouds, frolicking puppies and kittens as far as the eye can see, and the earth swallow all forms of evil.

Can any one of my esteemed colleagues really expect the new president to do all the things they have heaped in a pile in front of him? One blog I read stated that not since Jesus has one person been expected to do so much.

Does anyone really think that Barack Obama, George W Bush, Bill Clinton, or any president for that matter, wield so much power and sway that others will just bend to their wishes? Has anyone noticed how much all politicians change their tune when they start learning actual information and have to make hard decisions?
