Very well, thanks. President Obama's doing a fantastic job, and our country is slowly but surely recovering from the absolute mess that the Bush administration and the Republicans left.

Agreed. Economist are now estimating that we will be out of the recession by the end of this quarter versus the early estimates of 2-3 years.

I have also seen many unemployed people I know get jobs in the last few weeks from the stimulus and more hopefull that they will be returning to work soon due to more stimulus money on the way.

I also heard complete different stories....October 2009 the stock market will go down. More homes will be foreclosed on and unemployment still very high...

Tell me how many unemployed workers got a job and how many full time employees aren't accounted for since they didn't loose their job completely but are having part time hours?

Still very much hoping for UHC, although I realize that some sort of "compromise plan" will be more likely in the immediate future.

I absolutly LOVE the BIG CHANGE of having a responsable, intelligent adult person in the White House!

Nobody's perfect, but at least he's doing his job and doing it with thoughtfulness and intelligence. He's got a huge pile of dookie left over to deal with from the previous administrations....so bottom line is, it's early in his 4 years but I am more hopeful now, not just cautiously hopeful and frankly, terribly relieved.

Same here. Been great!

It is hope and change! Not "hope" and "change".
