Good Things About The Inauguration

In addition to the historic significance of having our first African-American president, here are some other positive things about Tuesday’s inauguration of Barak Obama:

– During our peaceful transition of power, George W Bush has been gracious and classy.

– The Democrats get a president from outside of Dixie.   After LBJ, Carter and Clinton, it may be good for them to change regions (okay that may have been a little politically biased).

gates Keeping Robert Gates as Secretary of Defense may be a sign that bi-partisan efforts in our government may occur.   In these times, we really need those guys to work together.

– Our new president has the goodwill of Congress, the American people and world-wide opinion.   This initial favor gives the nation fresh opportunities both domestically and internationally.
