"The most hated President in the history of Presidents is about to say goodbye, and we can see if President Elect Obama can make good on his promises. It's sort of like having a backseat driver for the past 8 years and finally throwing up your hands and saying "Would you like to drive? Go ahead!" We'll see if they can do better."
Talk about hitting the nail on the head--I think I snorted my coffee laughing! As one of those backseat drivers, the analogy captures my feelings over the past 8 years just as much as I'm sure it captures Stacy's as a driver.
