Actual President-Elect Barack Obama

Just as a matter of history, it's fun to watch Barack Obama be officially elected President in the House of Representatives today. It's even more fun to watch Nancy Pelosi interrupt Fourthbranch Cheney to provoke a standing ovation, certainly meant to emphasize that Cheney, Bush and the gang will be out of all of our lives in a couple weeks. Start watching around 3:00:

As someone mentioned to me in an email, there is probably nobody more responsible for the pathetic condition of the country that led to this epic, historic shift in the balance of power in Washington than Dick Cheney himself, so this is doubly sweet, to see him have to carry out his duties as President of the Senate to officially usher in the Obama era. How fitting.
