On a path toward greatness

The second presidential inauguration of Barack Obama affirms the belief that many of us held when we first witnessed him speak at the Democratic convention on behalf of presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004 — that Obama was on a path toward greatness.

With Obamacare, the closing down of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the steady hand in the handling of the Gulf oil spill, the strength showed against a stonewalling Congress, and an impressive win over Republican candidate Mitt Romney for a second term, Obama has demonstrated he is the leader for the times.


I believe that fair-minded Republicans and Democrats wish the president a successful second term; a successful second term would mean, in the eyes of the world, a successful America.
