President Obama Doesn’t Need Your Baggage

It’s finally here.  The big day.  An African American President, and I don’t even have to watch Keifer Sutherland act.

If I were delivering the invocation at today’s ceremony, I would remind people to stop putting their baggage on the new Prez’s shoulders.  He doesn’t need to be a symbol of how far you’ve come as a nation.  He doesn’t need to reconcile this nation’s historic racial turmoil.  He doesn’t need to fulfill anybody’s dreams but his own.  The job will be hard enough.

So suck it, Bono.
