In Our Lifetime

**

What we witnessed this morning--not just the inauguration of a man whose father would have been ordered to sit at the back of a bus sixty years ago, but also the peaceful transfer of power from one side of the political spectrum to the other--is something of which all Americans, whatever their politics, can be proud.

Congratulations, Mr. President! And congratulations, America.

Despite eight years of strenuous effort to turn her into a Third World Banana Republic, America still has a good heart and civilized manners.

Congrats!

From a non-American -- yes, you can be proud.
