Whether you like him or not, do yourself a favor and watch the President’s year-end press conference.
Or at least the first five or six minutes — you can always stop if the good news and hopeful signs are just too discordant for you.
But you’re paying this guy’s salary; and if you are one of those upset we’ve not okayed the Keystone Pipeline, or that we’re reestablishing diplomatic relations with Cuba, or that people have been marching out of frustration over the non-indictments . . . or whatever your biggest dissatisfactions are . . . take the time to watch.
It just might get you into the holiday spirit, knowing that things are looking up and that — in the steady, rational leadership of the man charged with more responsibility than any other on the planet — we have, for two more years, a gift that keeps on giving.
