The presidency of Barack Obama has officially begun ushering in what he hopes will be a new era of responsibility. I share that hope.
Looking back on the presidencies in my lifetime, responsibility is not a word I'd associate with any of them, save possibly for Carter's though I am too young to properly judge. As Obama has transitioned to power, he has demonstrated unprecedented transparency. He has called upon service to the nation and each other. He has asked others to share their ideas and hold him accountable for his. We shall see how effectively that will happen, but he's off to a strong start. [+/-] Hide/Show Text [+/-] Hide/Show Text
