Someone on Dr. Phil said it best yesterday. You can go in a store right now and purchase a Barack Obama shirt with sequins and hopeful messages all over them. This man has become a celebrity, not a President. While watching the inauguration procession today, it reminded me of when Princess Diana died. The millions of people lining the streets. People crying at the sight of the car. The paparazzi going crazy. I found I was sad. Maybe it's wrong of me not to give the man the benefit of the doubt. I maintain he seems like a family oriented decent man, politics aside. He doesn't seem spiteful or mean. But I guess over the next few years we'll see what he's made of.
Let's hope he remembers, too, that he's the President of the United States and not Elvis.
