The Downside of Being President-Elect
When you go on vacation and an international crisis breaks out, you get hounded by protesters.
From a pool report today:
About a half dozen demonstrators had assembled near the security checkpoint fronting the entrance to the $9 million rental home where [President-elect Barack] Obama and his family are staying.
Some carried signs urging Obama to address U.S. Foreign policy when he takes office.
Ann Wright, a retired Army colonel, wore a T-shirt that read: “We will not be silent” and carried a sign that read: “Change U.S. foreign policy. Yes we can.”
Wright, 62, of Honolulu, said the demonstrators represented various groups, including her organization Veterans for Peace.
Other signs read “War is Terror” and “Free Palestine.”
Right about now, President George W. Bush must be enjoying his increasing irrelevance a bit more.
