The Light at the End

Three years from today there will be a ceremony on the steps of the Capitol in Washington whereupon someone other than George W. Bush will raise their right hand and say,

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.

And maybe that person will actually mean it.

As Bobby Cramer notes, “Hope is my greatest weakness.”
