1 - I get the whole "Didn't want to watch the Inauguration" thing. That is personal choice.
2 - What I don't get is that someone doesn't like Obama based on reading his book "Dreams of My Father" because it did not discuss his mother. The book was not about his mother. And, judging by how Mr. Obama has acted in the past, he values the privacy of his family... especially those who are still alive. He has kept his children from the media. His grandparents were away from the media. And his mother was too.
3 - People still defend Sarah Palin's $180,000 wardrobe. Umm... does no one even stop to consider how excessive that is, given that she spent that much in less than THREE MONTHS?
