Meaning of His Victory

CNN has a very interesting article trying to capture and articulate the meaning of Barack’s victory.  One sentence in their is both informative and disturbing.  It said

“Barack Hussein Obama did not win because of the color of his skin. Nor did he win in spite of it. He won because at a very dangerous moment in the life of a still young country, more people than have ever spoken before came together to try to save it. And that was a victory all its own. ”

This is a little scary to me because it casts him as a messiah for the country.  No man other than God can do that.  Expectations are simply too high for him.  This to me dooms him to fail or at a minimum let a lot of people down.  What would saving the country mean and would the results of this salvation be permanent?

Hope has no limitations.  Dream big and dream often.  This country is in peril.  What are the answers to the problem?
