At the end of four years of Prez Obama's administration, here are two things I hope are accomplished... or at least underway:
We will have the best infrastructure in the world. Highways, roads, bridges, power grids, high speed Internet and high speed trains, pipelines, efficient vehicles and homes, clean water sources, vibrant ecosystems with low pollution, safe air traffic control, and security against all threats. This infrastructure will support our industries and our environment equally. Building this world class infrastructure will become the work and the passion for millions of our citizens. It will be the best investment this country ever made.
We will be moving rapidly toward real, sustainable energy independence, and in the process of getting there, we will become the world leaders in renewable, sustainable, clean energy sources. We will provide practical solutions to the emission of greenhouse gases. The invention, manufacturing and exporting of these technologies will be the work and passion of many more millions of Americans. It will become the "brand" of American industry.
Is that too much to hope for?
