The true majesty of the incoming administration was on display the day after the inauguration, with Obama's first two actions. One, a revocation of Bush's executive order on the secrecy of old White House records, and second with Obama's issuance of a remarkable new executive order on White House ethics.
Both actions elevate the the legitimacy and authority of the office by proclaiming: the office of the Presidency belongs to the people, not to the person who happens to occupy it.Posted by David at January 22, 2009 05:32 AM
