America and the World are ex static over Obama’s win over McCain, and the end of Republican arrogance.

We are all hopping that Obama will usher in a new way to bring America back into the World Community, and throw aside Bush’s legacy of World Dominance, and the First Strike mentality.

Obama's appointment of a new Chief of Staff, Mr. Rahm Emanuel is disturbing.

Rahm Emanuel is not only a poor choice for Obama's Chief of Staff; he's one of the least progressive picks he could have made.

Rahm Emanuel is closely aligned with Israel making it questionable that Obama is going to have a balanced policy towards the Middle East.

While he may have decent views on abortion, tax policy, and social security, Emanuel's broader vision is more of the same: war and corporate dominance.

Emanuel’s appointment in this key position does not bode well for "A New Day, with an open and balanced attitude to the World.

I thought that Obama was opposed to war, and cared for the middle and lower classes who’s share of the pie has gotten smaller and smaller?

Obama needs to deal with the worst abuses of the Bush Administration.

He needs to restore the Constitution, and the rule of law.

He needs to end the Criminal Invasion and Occupation of Iraq.

He needs to focus on ending the War in Afghanistan.

The reason for the attack on Afghanistan is false; 9/11 was an inside job, and a False Flag operation.

He needs to have a major review of the 9/11 attack.

He needs to stop the aggressive nature of America’s attitude to he World.

He needs to close the US prison in Cuba.
