Hottest ticket in Town….

In ELECTION 08, HOT BUTTON TOPIC, Politics, SCIENCE OF POLITICS, THE PEOPLE'S NEWS, WORD ON THE STREET on November 25, 2008 at UTC.14.30.

On January 20, 2009 this country will see its Presidential elect Barack H. Obama take the Presidential oath on the West side of the White house. A historical day of contrasts to say the least. Obama will become the 44th President of the Unitesd States of America. He joins the elite company of white men that have been the only ones relegated to that ultra powerful office.

In case you didn’t know, Obama will become the 1st elected African American President. Is he really? I suggest taking a trip to the library or bookstore and looking for a little known book entitled “5 Negroe Presidents”, written by esteemed historian J. A. Rogers.

Regardless, if you think he’s the first or not, everyone and their mama will be in the Disctrict of Columbia on the 20th. Equally important will be the MLK celebrations in nations capital the fanfare should be one for the ages.

Latest estimates for the inauguration are over 2 million people and climbing daily. Don’t have a ticket yet? Well, unless you have powerful friends in Congress or corporate lobbyists then its probably too late to find any unless you want to go the way of scalpers, or the myriad of reported net sites that supposedly have them.

For your information, the tickets are free of charge and only state Congresspersons in your respective state have ‘official’ tickets to the inauguration. Its surely the hottest ticket in town! There are other events that weekend, like the inaugural parade, and inaugural ball.

If you’re interested in going, check these sites http://inaugural.senate.gov. In addition, Destination DC has information on hotel, ground & air travel packages. Also, www.washington.org and 800-889-5344 can be helpful in inquiring about lodging & travel to & from Banneker City aka Chocolate City!!!
