I still, even after all this time, have these moments where I think "Wait. Barack Obama is going to be President of the United States of America?"
Don't get me wrong. I think he'll be a great president. But when you consider the mountains of challenges that he's faced, and consider that this train only really got rolling back in 2002, it's just plain stupefying.
Edit: It's also gratifying to note that the Senators who are going to be kicked out on their asses are part of the class of 2002. I remember 2002. I remember why those Senators got in. I remember the rhetoric, and the triumphalism.
Watching these guys go is going to be sweet.
