Re: <nettime> Obama and the dawn of the Fourth Republic

 I also have been rather surprised. I think all of those of us in the
US who lean left _at all_ are aware that Obama is more of a centrist,
but compared to the utterly corrupt and incompetent horror we've been
stuck with, I think some enthusiasm is justified.

And I also would like to know what's behind the ill-will as well,
because if nothing else, we've at least finally elected a person of
color, which thrills me almost beyond words.

So what gives? Do you really think we're all going to immediately just
sit back and stop paying attention? Maybe you do, but if that troubles
you, then (as I've said before on this list) stop bitching about it
and do something, and inspire others by writing about that instead.

But in spite of my annoyance and puzzlement over the recent comments,
I still value the opinions expressed on the list and end offering my
warmest regards.
