Foremost among them for me is this: To be truly worthwhile, a process must be entered into with one's whole heart
. A husband and wife must love each other with their whole hearts; they must commit to their marriage, to their family, to the future, to God with their whole hearts.
So, what Obama may yet become is always at the back of one's mind, even as one supports him with one's whole heart
. However, there is comfort in the incontrovertible fact that in Obama's case, the significance of what he has already achieved by beating Hillary Clinton, is, in itself, so historically important that unless he becomes a really very bad president, or, indeed, a very good one, it will dwarf what he is yet to fail to achieve, or actually accomplish in office.
