Farewell, Barack Obama

With this being the last day in office for Barack Obama - the greatest president of my lifetime - I will honor the man by reprising a clerihew I wrote about him back in 2006, when he was still a U.S. Senator:

Barack Obama
With Barack Obama,
Each word and each comma
Is perfectly placed. But what sets him apart?
The depth of his mind and the depth of his heart.

During the next four years I will fight every day to withstand the mindlessness and heartlessness of our national leadership. Yes, we can.
