I have major policy disagreements with Barack Obama, but I have to admit that I like the way he handles himself. He gets this big left-wing backlash for having Rick Warren give the benediction at the inaugural and his response is pitch perfect. Boiled down to essentials: This is a big country and there are a lot of ideas around. There are going to be many points of view represented by people interacting with the White House.
Awfully good appeal to pluralism in the best sense of the word. Score one for Mr. Obama.
