While I disagree with the content of Obama's speech, I'm not a complete curmudgeon. It's great to see people reacting with such giddy optimism. Whether it's blind optimism or not has yet to be seen. Still, the joy that is being expressed is a fundamentally American reaction, that things can and will get better.
So -- for all of you out there celebrating, far be it for me to begrudge you your moment. I'm happy that you are happy. Here's hoping there is something to be happy about.
