we chose

I spent the weekend with my mom, a card-carrying Republican, and as could be expected I got a dose of Fox News. These fine folks refer to Obama as "The Chosen One," their heavy-handed satirical comment on the popularity of our new president.

After eight years of Bush, anyone's going to look like a savior. And Obama is actually acting like real one: he's focused, and he's concentrating his effort not on supporting a futile war, but on supporting us.

He is the chosen one, not as demigod, but because we chose him to lead our country.
