At this point, you simply say: You are correct, while I may make assumptions based off my previous perceptions and events of the subject at hand, I may make no objective qualifications as he has not taken office yet.
I would then say, "Ah ha! You are acting rationally for a change", and this ridiculous exchange of hypotheticals could cease.
he was not even elected 5 days ago. Wow rugger, I thought even you couldnt fall into this type of crap.
let it go man, the election is over, lets see what he can do. I know you are a true dem and all but I figure you might want to sit and wait it out

I'm sure that the left has specified in advance of his candidacy and their financial and moral support exactly what changes they want to see."As a candidate, Senator Obama said that he wanted all the Bush executive orders reviewed and decide which ones should be kept and which ones should be repealed and which ones should be amended, and that process is going on. It's been undertaken," Podesta said.
Podesta said Obama's team will be "looking at -- again, in virtually every agency -- to see where we can move forward, whether that's on energy transformation, on improving health care, on stem cell research."
Podesta said there is a lot the president can do without waiting for Congress, and voters can expect to see Obama do so to try to restore "a sense that the country is working on behalf of the common good."
While American's will be focusing on GM, Ford, 401k's, housing, mortgages, gas prices - he'll swiftly change the moral fabric of our country right under your noses. He's got debt's to pay...
"God bless America" - Figure I'd make the statement while I'm still allowed
Shouldn't we wait until he's president before we throw him under the bus?
Might as well give him a chance to prove himself
I think an open mind is looking objectively at the facts and coming to a realistic conclusion (or opinion, I try not to come to any final conclusions on anything).
Are there any other criminals you'd like me to keep an "open mind" about? Cheney perhaps?
He's already shown us what he's about.
He voted for the patriot act,
For giving a billion dollars to georgia,
For the Bailout,
For funding and continuing our ever expanding rediculous war,
I'd love for him to surprise me. But I'd be less surprised if I won the lottery (i've never bought a ticket)
When he is commander in chief he can and will do things within his power to...review, repeal, amended, restore...without waiting for Congress.Podesta said there is a lot the president can do without waiting for Congress, and voters can expect to see Obama do so...
I believe what the pessimist (aka: realist) would interpret that to mean is - reverse.
That will be proving himself. This was part of the package.
OT: Interesting piece of data - some polls report Obama garnered 95% of the African American vote and 65% of the Hispanic American vote, yet 70% of African Americans and 60% of Hispanic Americans support California's Proposition 8 and Arizona's Proposition 102 - it's on his list!
Politics is all conjecture
