I'm rooting for Obama. Despite his inexperience I think he's got a great skill-set for the job and like most civil rights icons, he's in a hurry. If he wins, we win. I haven't seen much true political greatness in my life. It'd be fine with me if I did. That does not mean I'm not going to be breaking his balls, but rather the opposite.
I am frequently asked how editorial cartoonists will continue to make a living without George Bush. Often the implication is that President Obama is so wonderful, we'll never be able to make fun of him. While Bush was a gift that kept on giving, the satirical opportunities were dripping with tragedy. I'm not worried about finding new material. For starters, the Clintons are back.

While sitting by a fire, my friend Chris Kelly and I discussed how much worse things might get. This cartoon is the bastard step-child of that conversation. Don't tell anyone but I'm giving him the original for his birthday on Friday night.
