The great, almighty buzz-word: CHANGE.
Senator Barack Obama has built his entire Presidential campaign on the theme of "CHANGE." This seems to have worked for him, now that he is the nominee of the Democratic Party. He has a very good chance of winning residency at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
But my heart and head keeps asking the question: "Change to WHAT?"
I know what everyone wants to "change" from...but no one--including Senators McCain and Obama--have given even a hint of what we are "changing to."
CHANGE for the sake of "change" is not a satisfactory answer, in my opinion. And it's certainly not a strategy for leading the world's most wealthy nation.
