Obama prepares

Barack Obama spent the day before his inauguration in the community, painting the walls of a centre which accommodates young people. In politics there is much scepticism, but I felt the image was a good start to what he says he is about in making changes.
Michael Tomasky in the Guardian outlines what he will be looking for in Obama’s Presidential Address. He expects that the outgoing Bush will be thanked for what he contributed to the U.S. – a difficult one – “it will be more gracious than he (Bush) deserves”. An article in the Birmingham based “Stirrer” sums this up for me.
