It still remains to be seen where he is going, but he is off to a good start. The gag order on abortions has been removed, as expected. He's ordered Guantanamo closed. He's ordered an end to torture. (Though now what I want to see him do is order torture prosecutions. My sincere hope is evidence is started to be gathered quietly on this, but that is just a hope).
So far, my hope is still alive, against all odds. It is nice to have a little of that. It beats being a cynical bastard all of the time. Probably improves my health, too.
