A Personal Invitation

Barack Obama has personally invited me to attend his inauguration.

He said so in an e-mail.

According to Barack, he and his staff (lets be honest – neither he nor his staff have been setting up the Mall all week. It’s people who are on someone else’s staff who have likely never even met the President-elect.) have “put together an inaugural full of great events.” And at these events? Barack wants me “to be a part of the celebration.” Because after all, he continues, “This inauguration isn’t about me. It’s about all of us.”

All of us. That’s right. Me, Barack, and 4 million of our closest friends.

I will be at the the inauguration. If you’re going, give me a call. Perhaps we can find each other in the midst of the millions.
