Smitten. I am smitten. Even though I was a supporter of Obama for quite a long time, for me it was all principal. Opposition to war. Women's rights, including to abortion. Thoughtful consideration rather than reactivity.
And now, post-inauguration, I find I LIKE him, and his family, and his easy going values, priorities and confidence.
Bravo to him for freezing high salaries.
Bravo to him for emphasizing ethics, for old and new government workers.
Bravo to him for "working the room" at the inaugural luncheon, but still being respectful of Sen. Kennedy's emergency.
Bravo to him and Michelle for making it to all ten (!) official parties. And dancing.
Hitting the ground running.
I like it.
