How long will the honeymoon last?



Isn't it time for Obama fans to worry that the Obama-mania of recent days may not be good for his presidency? Is the euphoria — the passion that's brought millions to D.C., led some mainstream journalists to lose all sense of detachment, and led to unparalleled optimism among African-Americans, a whopping two-thirds of whom told CNN pollsters that Dr. King's dream was realized — setting him up for a fall? Or, at the very least, a big letdown when he can't deliver as quickly as we'd like?

Some observers think he'll have a longer honeymoon than usual, considering the challenges he faces. Others, like Washington Times editor emeritus Wesley Pruden, write that the honeymoon ends immediately once Obama's sworn in.
