After four months of campaigns, elections, and the inauguration, President Barack Obama must be overwhelmed, especially since he is our first biracial president. Many Americans have been waiting for a change of scenery from the declining economy, the war in Iraq, and environmental issues. Obama is just the person for that job.

The last question I would like to inquire is; are you nervous? Although Barack Obama has been in the ‘limelight’ for the past four months, he is still new to the whole ‘president act’. He might be the President of the United...
