Do you think President Barack Obama's positive attitude will turn this country around?
"Being positive is good. It's like beating on the empty barrel making the most noise. Talk is good. A lot of decisions have to be made, but I don't know about another trillion bailout. If so, it had better be done right because there might not be another chance. It's great a black man can be elected. I came from an immigrant family. I feel I can support him. No matter what color or what race, he's an American."
-- Pete Tsouchlos
"I don't think we will be in as much debt. He is the first black president, so it might be positive."
-- Amanda Corns
"I'm hopeful but doubtful."
-- Teresa Siders
"I'm a Republican and a Christian. I watched the inauguration on TV and was impressed but not with some followers who were disrespectful during the prayer. I think (President) Obama will be good for the country."
-- Morris Stivers
"I hope things change, and I hope people get more open minded not only about race but everything. But I'm afraid with his following that he will have too much power."
-- Ruth Perry
