I see a very interesting pattern on these Open Thread Friday (and one Saturday) posts. People have been very hopeful and optomistic about President-elect Barack Obama who will be sworn in this coming Tuesday. Yes, you can discuss anything you want here but I felt that it is coming so close to inauguration day that it would be appropriate to have a theme about what are your wishes, hopes and prayers for President-elect Obama. Read the other posts about what conduct is expect in participating here. Be civil, be respectful and keep it clean, otherwise there will be consequences. Otherwise enjoy the conversation.
