On the day of Barack Obama's inauguration as President of the United States, most American's hope he will succeed in leading
this nation in a manner fitting the historic nature of his presidency. The political Left (which includes almost all journalists

thereof. CNN.com may have tired of the idea of Barack Obama as a political Messiah, so theyre switching it up. On Monday night,
