the USA has a new president

So the ceremony went off without too many problems... except the minor flub over the oath of office.

The media are all scrambling now to boil things down to a few seconds of sound bite.

I don't want to minimize in any way what a big step this for the States to have a black president, but like so many political things in our western culture, the hype is so high. And in this case, the expectations are so great. Enhanced, I might add, by the speech Obama gave.

The real work begins now... we need to pray for leaders...
