After months of speculation, the nation has a new Commander in Chief.
While pundits, pollsters, and podcasters debated though the late summer and early fall over how events would develop, it is now clear that there will be new leadership at the top, giving many Americans a sense of comfort and optimism.
While the current administration offered an endless stream of sensational news and meme-able moments, much of the nation had become weary of the volatility and division that grew out of such antics.
Some party members remaining supportive to a fault, hopelessly devoted if you will, while others spoke in brazen opposition, usually to their own detriment.
Whether these criticisms were voiced out of sincere dissent or spotlight seeking is impossible to know, but even if moved to the center of media coverage, such ‘problems’ were swiftly removed and focus always returned to El Presidente.
This split opinion of the top had spread to the general public, contributing to a widening divide. Previous generations have always found common causes to rally behind, but in today’s climate, civility and decorum only slipped ever deeper.
Build Back Better
After numerous delays, a decision was finally reached, and we are able to confirm alongside our journalistic colleagues, change is arriving inevitably and imminently.
Next at the helm is a figure with far more widespread popularity. Americans, and international well-wishers, rejoiced at the news with congratulations and cheers, a jubilant marker of what will hopefully be a return to normalcy.
In a season with so much disruption, Americans are cautiously optimistic about the journey they will go on with this new leadership.
Where once there was favoritism, they hope to see egalitarianism.
Where once there was alarmism, they hope to see rationalism.
Where once there was Daleism, they hope to see indiscriminate make outs.
This season of The Bachelorette has truly been a rollercoaster, but through it all, we have believed in the promise of a better tomorrow and that promise rolled up in her limo in the last minute of last week’s episode. We acknowledge the delicate work of galvanizing the house that Speaker Harrison has done, and Tayshia’s forebearer, Rachel Lindsay, who blazed a trail, prepared the nation, and inspired generations.
It will take America, especially Jason, time to heal, but we will do it in the care of an experienced, bridge-building Bachelorette. Bachelorette Adams, welcome to La Quinta, we are so happy you’re here.
