1) Healthcare reform. It is a idea whose time has come. When Hillary tried it in 94, she had the insurance industry and corporate elites against her. Obama will have the corporates on his side this time around, because they are tired of the costs of healthcare eating into their bottom line. He will be able to negotiate from a position of strength. Hillary took a my-way-or-the-highway approach to this in the 90s. She got slammed. Obama's style will get people to cross the aisle to make this happen.

2) Energy. The reason the economy was booming in the Clinton term was the digital revolution. Clinton got credit for it because it happened on his watch. Obama understands that if the government gets behind innovative environmental technology, the same economic boom can happen. He has to take on oil and auto, but it's do-able.

3) The Neocon foreign policy elites will be relegated to the dustbin of history. Thank God. Obama will make people understand there are not military solutions to every problem. Vice President Jim Webb will be very good at fostering this change in U.S. foreign policy.
