One Week To Go. Make Your Transfer-of-Power Plans Now

Almost-President Obama takes office next Tuesday. I hope you’ll watch the ceremony. Every four years, I stop what I’m going, a television (the internet works, too!), and watch the vice-president and president take the oath of office. I’m not always happy about who’s standing there with his right hand in the air. (And I’m never happy about the “god” part). Four years ago, I wept as I watched (and not for joy).

But I stand witness anyway. That moment of transfer — that peaceful transfer of power — defines who we are as a nation and a people. Millions of people around the world would love to enjoy that same privilege.

So whether you supported Obama or not (and I did), I hope you’ll take a moment to watch him and Almost-Vice-President Biden become our new leaders.
