Change Is Already Happening

The Obama family went to a Chicago food bank yesterday and spent an hour handing out wrapped chickens to people waiting in line for food. The president-elect and his wife said they wanted to show their girls the meaning of the holiday, especially when so many are struggling.

You can see a slide show of pictures here.

Seriously, when was the last time you ever saw a President of the United States volunteer at a food bank the day before Thanksgiving?

This is a man who understands the role of the President of the United States, knows how to be a good figurehead and knows how to set a good example.

He is already effectively the acting President, since he is one who's actions are now effecting the markets. Meanwhile Bush, the guy who is still technically President, is given a free pass by the media for sitting around and doing literally nothing while the economy crumbles.
