Party on, Mr. President

Presidential inaugurations are rooted in traditions and history, many dating back to the choices and tone set by President George Washington in 1789. Everything from the pomp and circumstance surrounding the official oath and a Bible on which the new president lays his hand to the presidential address to the nation where he outlines his agenda for the next four years are predictable and oh so American. And expensive.

While much has been made of this year's $0 million price tag, most of that is from private, well-heeled donors, not limited by campaign finance reforms on amounts they can donate. (At one count, at least 52 donors had contributed $50,000 each.) Taxpayer costs are more hidden, in the form of heightened security, federal employees in D.C. getting a day off, traffic control - all the kinds of ancillary and support necessary to bring any kind of large public gathering to Washington.

Who can begrudge the candidate of either winning party, however, the right to party. For President George W. Bush this year, it will include a twirl on the dance floor at nine official balls, plus appearances at a slew of other grand ol' parties around town. But to put the hoopla into perspective, this year's $0 million price tag for the inauguration is the same as the first Bush swearing in four years ago and only $ million more than the 14 balls and events surrounding President Bill Clinton's day eight years ago.

So party on, Mr. President. Don't let the naysayers put a damper on your parade. A recent Associated Press poll showed that the majority of Americans - more than the margin of victory in your November election - felt hopeful and optimistic about your leadership, the country and their own fortunes for the next four years.

They believe in you. They believe our Iraqi involvement will not have been in vain. They believe you can provide good ideas and solid backup for your second term domestic agenda proposals on Social Security, tax and tort reforms.

That's reason enough to feel good, to celebrate. Much work is left to be done in the remaining 1,400 days ahead. Leaders who believe they have a destiny to fulfill have great opportunity to prove themselves.
