It's great that America elected a black man. I was worried that we couldn't do it. Obama showed a lot of promise, but he's either failing or he's way to careful and slow for his own good and ours. (The Gays in the military is a perfect example. He promised this while running for office; he had the power to make the change right away; but he didn't have the balls to do it and it's taken way too long.) He promised to end the human rights violations of Guantanamo Bay and hold trials or release prisoners. It ain't happened yet. He has the bully pulpit for guiding the country, but he doesn't speak out on civil rights and other issues even when we know what his stance is. I, for one, am very very disappointed in him. He may be President, but he's not much of a Leader.
