You’ve probably read about the bipartisan rejection of the resolution congratulating President Barack Obama in our State Agencies committee on Wednesday. Like the majority of committee members, I voted against it—I thought it was historically inaccurate, divisive and perhaps a little insulting. (Read the full text in PDF file here.)
I predict that, very shortly, the committee will unanimously pass a resolution that celebrates President Obama’s electoral victory. This new resolution will recognize that Obama is the president of all the people, rather than having some special attachment or relation to any one demographic group. Perhaps even more importantly, the new resolution will be much shorter.
Of course, predictions are notably easier when you have inside information.
