As a critic of him, I will admit that is a nice way to start things.

Yes, critics need to give him a chance. He's trying hard to hear everyone and address concerns. And he's just getting started. How he votes on issues and what results we get will tell whether he's doing the job we expect. Of course, not everyone wants or expects the same things, so people need to give some space for all sides of issues. "You can't please all of the people all of the time" as they say.
