PROFILES IN ________?

Obama_faces

The archetypal tag-line for the Kennedy years was "Profiles in Courage". Now that Obama's election seems assured, one can wonder how a future historian might fill in the blank line to characterize his presidency.

My crystal ball gazing has never been very good but what seems clear right now is that Obama has been able to chart his course through all the projections from deepest fears to highest hopes with a calmness and a fundamental strategy of inclusion rather than separation.

With the world entering into a period of prolonged crisis, I really pray for him... and for us.

I like the above image because of all the possibilities that it suggests, including "all of the above". The photo, along with many other interesting tidbits come from Andrew Sullivan's blog, The Daily Dish.
