Since the election I’ve been so excited by the general prospect of an intelligent, rational, reasonable, and progressive president that I haven’t spent much time thinking about the details of exactly what a Barack Obama presidency will mean. As his inauguration is now only five days away, here, in no particular order, are ten great reasons to look forward to his presidency:
2. Hillary Clinton will be Secretary of State. She’ll have her hands full repairing the damage of the Bush administration and dealing with the situation in Gaza, among others, but I can’t think of anyone I trust more to manage our foreign affairs.
6. No more “global gag rule” restricting US funding to family planning groups that even mention abortion.
