Everything's gonna be okay: Obama is a Mac

This is a new series in which I plan to highlight how everything's gonna be okay* now that we've elected the anti-matter opposite of George W. Bush to the highest office in our humble little land.

Part I: Obama is a Mac

Obama uses a Mac. I love the idea that there will be a Mac laptop on the desk in the Oval Office. I mean, how cool is that? And is that a photo of Martin Luther King Jr on the table next to the Mac? And is that a clever little Pac Man sticker on his Mac eating the Apple? Oh, I like what I see, Mr. Obama, I like.

...and so is Biden! Somebody pinch me.

*yes, I know that Obama's not a silver bullet (no such thing as a silver bullet in our complex world) but he's as damn-well close to it as I can possibly wish for at this stage in our history, and I intend to celebrate that, so there.

He also uses Creative Commons licenses, which I think is far more cool.

Using a mac doesn't suggest that he'll be introducing pro-Mac legislation, but using CC licenses is a sign of hope regarding IP reform and open-access.

Nah, McCain was the Mac: the clue's in the name.
