Obama's Speech

The Wall Street Journal requested no more than 100 words of my opinion on President Obama's inauguration speech. Here is what was published:

President Obama got it right in his inauguration speech.

He did the one thing I believe is the most important: He asked everyone to join the team in service to the country. He is smart enough to know that the presidency is not a one-man show. It's a team effort, and in this case, the team is millions strong.

A true leader has the humility to understand that when he's at the top, he's standing on the shoulders of the people. We all have our work cut out for us.
