The new president

The USA has a new president and I doubt that any has faced greater expectations, than Barack Obama, the 44th man and first of African descent to hold that role.

He will be,  historian Robert Dallek says, not just making history, but building on it.

 

 

Obama succeeds George W. Bush whom history may judge more kindly than contemporary opninion which highlighted his shortcomings and gave him little credit for his ahievements, which included his leadership after the September 11 attacks.

 The immediate challenge Obama faces is not terrorism, it’s the economy. I wish him well because in spite of the high expectations of him, there are no miracles in politics.

UPDATE: The full text of his inaugural address is here.
