GUEST,JTS BS: Inauguration poetry (42) RE: BS: Inauguration poetry 21 Jan 09


Nigel,

In the unlikely event that you are being serious. My response is that context is important. No Obama's name was not in the words written 200 years ago. The majesty of that day was that the potential for it was there. It has taken until now to reach that potential.

Maybe the poem could have been better. I am not sure how. I'd sure like to see better in this thread. Keep in my the limitations that must have been placed on her. Especially consider that she would be expected not to step on the themes of Obama's speech.
