I 'liked' LH, but thinking --and I've read his interviews -- he's a bit recless now. Not a JPM recless, but close. His hero is Senna, and look where that led...great or not. His chance taking is gutsy and I like his spirit and ability...makes F1 more of a contest now than endless NASCAR with chicanes...sorry, but the new changes will help spice it up...thought he should have gotten it his rookie year, as this last year was marginal at best: Massa should have had it.

NOW, as for Obama before I hijack this thread, I agree with most, it was almost a let down, but, he is just a man, not Jesus. Give him a break..I don't know either what a great speech is as they usually only are great AFTER a fact, of which he is going into office. I agree he addressed more specifically the issues hurting us, but, then again, he specifically spent too much time addressing fine details, which I didn't get. GOOD thing is, he's seemingly an adult, and tackling the issues like one, not waiting on the sidelines pretending to be in control: LIKE that.
Giving him the keys, and hoping for the best, he'll need all the help out there. We are in a big, big mess and it's not going to get better I'm afraid, it is going to be a bit worse. 100 days, forget it, won't happen much.....give him over a year, perhaps two...it's that bad.
I know, feeling the pinches even MORE as I type.....
as for those that are pressing against his plans, well, they threw away the keys to the store on the last bunch and are still not realizing the ground has shifted greatly below them...don't get it, these are serious times needed serious addressings.
