OK, even I feel a little guilty for raining on everyone’s inauguration parade. If you’d all quit running around like Russians at a Stalin rally …. but never mind (and no, I’m not suggesting Barry O. is a commie). Robert George gets at all the optimism and meaning without making my skin crawl. Robert concludes:
Goodness knows there will be many times for policy and political disagreements with this new president. The dire challenges of the time will require earnest and heartfelt debate. But, those are put aside for now. I am optimistic that he is, a fundamentally good man (with a generous spirit who honors both trailblazing forebears and one-time rivals). I am proud to call him my president and thankful that I am able to watch his bold step into history today.
