Neither Christ Nor Antichrist

During the long presidential campaign, and especially on that triumphant evening of November 4, it appeared millions of Americans believed they had found a savior. The spirit in the air suggested that President-elect Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress would soon rally the economy, end wars, and set the captives free. And even now, with every brilliant Cabinet appointment the president-elect makes (at what seem to be daily press conferences), there’s agreement among most pundits that this man is inspired in his choices and that salvation is on the way.
