Presiden Barack Obama license plate
Without getting “too into it,” I wanted to take a brief moment to reflect on President Obama’s first 100 days (a silly measure of success, @ best). Considering the enormous challenges he has inherited, and while I may not love each and every decision he and his administration have made up until this point, I greatly admire and appreciate his sincere efforts to actively and responsibly move our country forward.

And hey, when was the last time you saw a sitting President get his own license plate shout-out, in less than 60 days in office, and not even from his home state (er, the state in which he was born), for that matter. Not to mention his consistently high – 68% (as of yesterday) – approval rating from the American people up through now.

Ultimately, President Obama’s successes (and failures) affect all Americans (and even the world at large, to some degree). With that in mind, here’s to a successful tenure as the leader of our nation – Cheers!

[I came across the license plate (above) during a trip to Virginia, on March 6, 2009. Looking back, it’s pretty ironic that it was on a GM (Chevy) car, given the current state of affairs.]
