Dear President Obama

Dear President Obama, originally uploaded by Gordon.

There is a Flickr group where you can post a message to President (elect) Obama.

But what to say?

I’m not sure what kind of job he will do as President, he’s inheriting one helluva mess, but that’s almost secondary to the fact that he was elected in the first place. One thing at a time and all that.

With that in mind, there really was only one message to send with the hope that “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”.

Not desperately sure a SWM should appropriate such a totemic phrase of oppression though. (But having met you I know you’re an OK guy.)
