@33ktgio7dq4jhDepends on how President Obama does or what happens during his term of office. The pendulum has gone about as far right as it can with the usual results (see 1982, 1930, 1907, 1894, etc. following glorious expansion of business profits without government interference). If Obama can change the mindset of the country to admiring service or sharing instead of greed or individual gain, the pendulum has swung and will come back the other way. If like Bill Clinton he slows the momentum without changing direction, he is just a part of the other cycle. We have great opportunity here but a growing dearth of resources. The old admiinistration said government could not afford anything that took money from the rich corporations; now we really have no money. The difference could be the willing participation of the people in community service, and we now have a community organizer at the top.
