52% of the people voted for Obama- 48% DID NOT, that is not overwhelming, that is just enough. The Dem congress has been in control for 2 years with the worst approval rating in history- way lower than Bush. So no, voting Dem is no "change", as Obama has only been in the Senate for a short time, so has been with the Dems while they have been the majority. Is your intellectual level able to follow that? Doubt it since you voted for him.
