Why Obama's Inaugaration can't come soon enough

There is just over a week to go before Obama's inaugaration, but the day just can't come soon enough.

Although I didn't support his candidacy, I agree with Gerard Baker that Obama's Premiership is unlikely to be a major departure from the Bush era. I actually think that many Liberal commentators will secretly miss the Bush years, as the 43rd President personified everything they loathed about America. Obama by contrast is something of chameleon, far harder to pigeonhole.

Come January 20th, the Liberal intelligentsia will no longer be able to hide behind the claim that "we're not anti-American, but anti-Bush". Expect to see the phrase "Uncle Tom" bandied around the Liberal media.
