The Blog Goes to the Inaugural

By January 20, 2005General

Not much to say today except that all the bloggers are off witnessing history at the 55th Presidential Inaugural. At yesterday’s NAM-hosted lunch for White House Chief of Staff Andy Card, he noted the simplicity and the power of the President’s oath, one of the shortest of any public official:

“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

How simple, how great. May it be ever thus.
