I will miss the Obamas

I will miss President Obama, the First Lady, and the entire Obama family, for a NUMBER of political and personal reasons.

But the one that I am mourning right now is dignity.

I will *miss* the grace, dignity, humor, and intellect the Obamas brought to the office and our nation. I will miss feeling unembarrassed in international affairs. I will miss being reasonably proud of being an American. I will miss the feeling that the U.S. has vaguely good intentions towards the world.

I am not looking forward to the constant cringing sense of shame that the new regime inspires.
