On Jan. 20, all the woes with which we've become terrifyingly intimate over the past four years will be swiftly washed away and replaced with a new pain-free edition of the human experience.

Just kidding. To put it succinctly, we have a long road ahead when it comes to partially crawling out of the current muck that's become synonymous with American life.
