Obama, having won the election, must feel like he has Seven-League Boots. Here’s what “The Light Fantastic” by Terry Prachett has to say about them:
“Seven league boots are a tricksy form of magic at best, and the utmost caution must be taken in using a means of transport which, when all is said and done, relies for its effectiveness on trying to put one foot twenty-one miles in front of the other.”
Obama will soon have a great deal of power. He had better be careful how he uses it. The whole country is watching, and he’s going to need to be a miracle worker to go four years and still look good to his public.
We’re watching you, President-Elect Obama. And we’re paying attention, this time around.
