President Obama gets himself back on my list

I am very happy with this President now that he has gotten healthcare reform passed. I feared that he would give up like Clinton did and break his promise. I feared wrong. When we really needed him, he came through for us. For the next six or eight months at least, this President will be regarded as a success in my book.
I feel badly about how much I criticized him over the past eight months. Its pretty much the same way I felt about Hillary getting so much abuse after she gracefully conceeded to Obama in the 2008 primaries.
This healthcare victory puts Obama right up there with FDR, Reagan, and LBJ as Presidents that were able to make big, long term changes. I hope we are all there behind Obama when he repeatedly vetoes any Republican attempts to repeal the healthcare law. I know I will be.
