Yep, gotta admit this is Cool:
Obama Steps to Door of White House--and History (Seattle Times article and picture)
Obviously Obama faces some daunting challenges, but I think he's up to them. And I like the symbolism of Obama being sworn in using the Lincoln Bible.
Of course I simply must comment on something that is Not So Cool
Jill Biden said on Oprah Monday that her husband had his pick between the vice presidency or the Secretary of State nomination that eventually went to Hillary Clinton, a slip that Joe Biden tried to shush. Full story here. According to the article, "Clinton's spokesman declined to comment about the suggestion that she was the second choice."
Good response, Hillary.
There were pages of reader comments over at the Huffington Post on this topic. Here's my favorite:
"Thank God Joe isn't Secretary of State. These people can't keep their mouths shut."
Anyway, Biden will be fine as VP and Hillary will be great as Secretary of State. I say let's move on and get to the business of the country.
