I would say that Jan. 20th can’t come soon enough but knowing the ginormous opinion Obama has of himself (hence the constant barrage of revisionist history lessons he keeps giving us, no graceful riding into the sunset for him) I suspect he will be unable to go one week without yelling to anyone with a microphone or camera ,”Look over here, I’m still awesome”.
