Inaugural Crossroads

Posted by gansie on December 24, 2008

elizabethalexanderApparently it’s poetry week here on YWM.

I wanted to send some props to Obama for continuing to choose women to be an integral part of his administration.

One of his latest moves: choosing Elizabeth Alexander to recite poetry at his kick-off party (aka inauguration.)

Although, I’m not really sure what BO was thinking with his choice of Rev. Rick Warren, a man known for saying nasty things about gays, Jews and Mormons.

Is this the inclusive message the country needs on this very historic day?  I thought we were changing from the days of W and evangelical hate?

Where is the change?

Where is the love?

    She is a wonderful poet and I know will do a great job. As to the Warren selection, now Obama has also chosen Bishop Gene Robinson (Gay) to speak on Sunday. Covering all bases I guess.
