The election ended almost a week ago, and by a commanding lead of 365 to 162 electoral votes (Missouri is still too close to call, but not essential), Barack Obama is now the President-elect of the United States. He will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States on January 20, 2009.
I must admit that it is really nice to see some positive remarks about our choice in President from our friends in other countries. With that said, I’d like to remind everyone here in the United States that Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the United States for at least the next four years. No matter who you voted for, change will come to America. Let’s see what happens next.
Last Sunday, Sarah and I were lucky enough to see Transformers in our local theater. It was great film. I would have appreciated more character development concerning the Transformers, but it would have been difficult to fit any more into the film without it being considered “too long” by younger audiences.

Best of all, it brought back memories from the long-running and well-established Transformers universe.
Here are four of my favorite moments from the Transformers universe.
