Good morning everyone! Happy Inauguration Day! Today is a day for celebration. Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, there are two things that we can agree on: Bush was a disaster and Obama has to be better (or else). We'll see what happens when the pomp and circumstance die down. Congress, somehow too busy to get a stimulus bill on Obama's desk on his first day will get to it in a week or a few. While there are plenty of great ideas on both housing and infrastructure projects- we'll see what's left when the self-interests of 100 senators (oh, make that 99 for now), lobbyists, etc. finish with it.
In the meantime, let's enjoy the day.
