Michelle is right about the isolation part and the fear and disconnectedness from others.And she is right about our souls being broken.We are way too concerned about attaining material wealth at the expense of our divine souls' integrity. Of course she makes the fatal liberal error of thinking government is the answer.Its not the answer,its the PROBLEM.
I agree. The way to get people to respect each other is to end affirmative action (so you _know_ the person working next to you got there by merit), raise the standards in schools (so you _know_ the meaning of the high school diploma), and allow those kids who are lousy students to get a job without worrying about minimum wages or union monopolies.
The odds of Obama adopting _any_ of those policies are exactly zero.
So these issues will remain with us after the Obamas retire from their throne--and they will _still_ call me a cynic.

Well,very true about affirmative action.It causes the distinct uneasiness that whenever you meet a minority professional,in the back of your mind you wonder”how did he GET that job?”
The corollary to ending affirmative action is to also eliminate mindless discrimination in hiring in FAVOR of whites,a practice that went on for many years in this country.
And while I know Obama and crew are big advovates for affirmative action,the whole policy really got going in 1969 under Republican Richard Nixon and contimued unabated in the Reagan years.
