What are the goals of the next president of the USA

I'm just curious as to what you guys think. I personally think that the next president's immediate goal will be to secure re-election.

Nice answer, and probably should be an option.

If one of the admins wants to add that option I'm completely OK with that. I can't (that I know of) edit it myself.

He will be concerned with re election and that will shape many policies.

McCain maybe a national hero but I felt he was really disconnected with the American people, while I truly felt that Obama was coming from the heart and was sincere with what he said. If you look at the campaign, not once, even during the debates when many said he would lose, he never lost his confidence, never was intimidated and never lost his resolve to win this thing.

I felt towards the end that McCain was accepting the inevitable, that he was going to lose this election, though I don't think he thought we would lose this bad (I mean he lost Virginia, Indiana, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico and Ohio, which were all Republican states in 04, and may well lose North Carolina, since they haven't called that one yet).

I hope Republican supporters don't start calling the election rigged, especially wince it was a lopsided victory. Obama has said all along that his list of priorities are (in order) the economy, health care, education and Iraq, and I truly believe he will stick to that plan.

My wife, who is a staunch Democrat said that in the beginning she thought McCain was being sincere and believed what he was saying, then as time went on and he started the smear campaign he lost that.

I hope Republicans learn something from this, that old style campaigns of slamming and attacking your opponent don't work anymore. The American people are tired of that, and the more McCain did it the further he got behind in the polls. It even happened in the House and Senate, even my state, where the Democrat won 4 years ago by only 129 votes, ran against the same Republican, who decided to use the attack/smear campaign tactics and this time he lost by over 50,000 votes.

America was dieing for a change, and they spoke with conviction last night, and left no doubt who they thought would bring about this change

I actually cannot argue that post PyschoCoder for the simple fact you are right, the smear campaigns don't work. Kerry & Gore both tried it and failed miserably as well.

I don't think the republicans will call it rigged, Obama won fair and square. He beat McCain down worse than the police did Rodney King.

I just hope he does the right thing and doesn't start to rewrite the constitution.

Also as an American citizen it is my duty to stand behind whoever is our commander in chief regardless of how I feel about him.
