Welcome to America's First Green President

It's truly thrilling that America has a black president. But what is equally thrilling to me is: America has a green president. By rights, Al Gore should have been our first green president, but beteween a series of flukes and the Supreme Court voting Bush in, we all know how that ended up. Today I feel an immense sense of relief. Finally, all the people working so hard to fight global warming and advocating for clean energy tech, environmental stewardship, and accountability for our profligate use of resources are swimming in the MAINSTREAM, not using our precious energy and money swimming upstream, fighting our own government. Bush, and his global warming denials and irresponsible policy of shopping and guzzling oil is on his way back to Texas to his 8,000 square foot home.
Now our efforts, organizing, and activism will go towards actually solving our problems, not just trying to prevent our country from moving backward. May all our work - President Obama [fun to write!!] and all his cabinet and all their staffs, and everyone who works hard to repair our world - be richly rewarded.

don't forget he is half white, raised by his white mother and white grandparents. More importantly, race shouldn't matter, should it? I want an AMERICAN in the oval office who is willing to work for the AMERICAN people.
