The Beginning of the End

Last night as I watched the news, the only soundbite used in the signing of the stimulus package was Barack Obama saying, "This is the beginning of the end." My question is, of what?

I can't remember if it was the local news affiliate who played that lonely statement or if it was the national news but I do know it was on ABC. That one statement can mean so much to so many different people.

Does it mean the beginning of the end of America? The end of democracy? The end of the recesssion? The end of job losses? The end of the world as we know it? The end of the world? The end of the political parties? The end of Wall Street? The end of individuals having some privacy left? The end of the best health care system in the world? The end of free choice? The end of hope?
