With the election results a week old, the worst thing we can do now is sit back for too long admiring the new president, his family and ourselves for electing him, and "wait and see what he does." No new administration waits till being sworn in before deciding and enacting its priorities on war, peace, credit, housing, jobs or heath care. While many are still boasting, roasting, coasting and toasting the election results the business of governing has already begun. So too the business of holding the new administration accountable must begin without delay.
