Firstly, a very Happy New Year to everybody. However, I have this weird feeling of still being stuck in 2008 with all it’s problems at least until January 20th. Because as long as Still President Bush is in office these problems sure as hell aren’t going to get solved. So it feels like we’re all sitting in a lifeboat waiting for the coastguard and hoping that nobody does anything to cause a leak (Dammit Israel!!!). They say a week is a long time in politics, so the next three weeks are going to feel like a lifetime. And what an in-tray President Obama is going to have on his first day: Fix the global economic crisis, arrange for an orderly withdrawal from Iraq, save the American motor industry while ensuring its long-term viability, achieving energy independence and solving global warming, stopping a resurgent Taliban and getting Israel and Hamas to talk just after a pretty severe deterioration in relations that weren’t the best to begin with. So…no pressure then.
