The Prof's Lesson for Today: I have hope.

First, I hope the President-Elect's behavior in the campaign - a despicable, fear-driven, embarrassing, no holds barred approach - will, now that he has won, be characterized by respect, integrity, diplomacy and collaboration. His acceptance speak showed a glimmer of the potential for this to be true.

Second, I hope that the hugely flawed personality of the 45th president which I know will not change, will be tempered by a strong-willed, purely motivated, politically savvy team of advisors and co-leaders, whose counsel he will hear and accept.

Third, I hope that if my first two hopes are un-fulfilled, that the exceptional tripartite system of checks and balances that has sustained has for over 240 years will carry us through and make us stronger than we already are.

Fourth, I hope that the President-Elect is as successful as president as he was as a candidate. I hope he means what he says and does what he promises as it relates specifically to dismantling the self-interested political core of Congress and re-directing their focus back to their original mandate - to serve the best interests of the country and ALL of its people.

Finally, and most importantly, I will not live in fear - I will be hopeful. And, I hope that will be possible for EVERYONE.
