That light you see at the end of the tunnel is the Hope Train approaching


(via: AFP) President Obama today said he sees “glimmers of hope” that the US economy may be wrestling free of a paralyzing recession but warned of “a lot of work” ahead to nurse it back to health. “We’re starting to see progress, and if we stick with it, if we don’t flinch in the face of some difficulties, then I feel absolutely convinced that we are going to get this economy back on track,” Obama said. But “we still have a lot of work to do, and over the next several weeks you’ll be seeing additional actions by the administration,” he said after talks with top officials steering the recovery effort.
