So, about this Obama guy...

We have a new president.  That's awesome, no doubt.

In many ways, I'm excited.

I'm looking forward to the future in many ways.  Hopefully, we are going to have a whole new set of environmental and social policies that will change the very course of our country.

We're going to have a president who supports many of the same social policies that I support.

I welcome this change.

But I cannot, and will not, be able to get over his support of Israel, especially after what has happened in Gaza.

It's an odd feeling, not supporting Obama in Shorewood. It feels like a secret that I should keep hidden from my peers, for fear of retribution. 

It'll be an interesting four years.
