    Whether you're liberal or conservative (or otherwise), I hope the next four years go much better and more peacefully, safely, and prosperously for you than the last four. It pains me to think that the country where a lot of my friends live is in such a difficult state at the moment, but I have hope that it could recover and learn from past mistakes.

    Good luck, Americans! I hope the Biden administration proves good for the U.S. and the rest of the world--or at least better than expected, if you're one of his critics. :D

    Cheers.

    We're always in a difficult state.
    But I'm hoping for improvement.

    I'm holding Biden to his word that we need to bring back bipartisan cooperation.

    It feels like the grown-ups are back in charge. Hopefully they'll be able to patch things up.

    At least keast there is a LOT better chance of it than in the last 4 years. :facepalm:

    Although frankly, Obama kept holding out the olive branch only to get his arm chewed off. Hopefully President Biden will use love that is somewhat harder than that. America and the Republicans sorely require it.
    But first there are many crimes and bad/naïve policies and blatant lies to correct.
    At last an adult is in charge. :D:cool::D Now we can begin to “Build Back Better.”

    Good luck indeed.

    Biden seems adult enough to (at least start to) repair the damage caused by 4 years of man child tantrums

    Biden couldn't do worse than Trump even if he tried to on purpose.

    Do not tempt fate.
    Remember that he voted to start the Iraq War.
    Let's just hope for the best, lest the gods show us their sense of humor.

    I hope you're right but don't expect miracles. And of course to have bipartisan cooperation you have to have agreement that cooperating is better than fighting.

    Otherwise we'll be right back where we were when President Obama named a SCOTUS candidate Republicans said was a good choice only to have the right lie about motives to stiff arm him.

    The gods invented Murphy's Law for their own amusement.
    Same goes for humans.
