At one time I was an Obama fan but no longer am. I wasn't disappointed to see that he had won but I was hoping for change so I am not sure what I really wanted. I am really nervous about what his healthcare plan is going to do to my life (I'm seeing horrible rate increases already) but otherwise, I am not unhappy with him. I guess all in all, what I really feel is nervousness. Anyone else feeling this way?

Like the others, I think I'm more worried about all the politicians working together to solve the problems with the economy and healthcare. I hope that with giving Obama another 4 years to work on it will produce some results. The position we are in didn't happen overnight, and it's going to take some time for it to get better. What we need to happen is for everyone to check their party affiliation at the door and do what's best for the country.

I am pleased with the results of the election.  Of the two candidates, I feel as if Obama was the best choice.  Am I nervous?  Not because he will serve four more years, but because of the state of the economy.  I'm really hoping we see progress in his last term.

Sure, I'm nervous, but it has less to do with the President than it does with the current economic conditions. I live in a state with high unemployment, low pay and no growth. A lot of our problems here are our local and state officials, who are too busy focusing on pushing party concerns rather than working for their constituents.
