Obama Defends Choice of Rick Warren
One of the reasons I didn't support Barack Obama in the primaries was that I objected to his constant refrain, "We aren't red states or blue states, we're the United States." What's the point of electing a Democrat if he's going to give equal time to Republicans? We've had 8 years of Republican rule and we elected a Democrat to reinstate Democratic values and positions.
We didn't get that with Rick Warren, of course, and I'm not surprised. Obama today defends his choice.
Get ready for more of the same. The last line of the article quotes Obama as saying:
A "wide range of viewpoints" will be presented during the inaugural ceremonies.
Shouldn't President-Elect Obama be showcasing Democratic viewpoints and values as an indication to the country and world of the change he's going to bring from the last 8 years?
