The 137-mile journey from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Washington, D.C. -- where Obama takes the oath of office Tuesday -- retraces the train route taken by his hero Abraham Lincoln as he traveled to assume the presidency in 1861.The Press is really eating up the historical parallel designed specifically for them to eat up. You might say they are "all aboard." (That was a good one, huh?)
I just heard Obama making a speech that sounded like an SNL skit. It was that bad. He thanked the conductors and the men who laid the track and then said he wants to fight for the "kids who hear whistles on the train and dream of a better life." Kids dream of a better life when they hear train whistles?
