There is a much bigger agenda afoot, but given the current political landscape, Obama and his team have to tread carefully.

The world we know it today, 8 years from now, will be radically different and hopefully much better, much simpler, less consumerism and more compassionate toward humans and more so toward the earth.

the times are a changin' folks, Lead, follow or get out of the way.

Peace
