Thread Name: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
There was a time in our lifetimes when Presidents spoke well, thought clearly and reflected their thoughts with the fine art of good rhetoric; when their insights were understandable and consistent with their best decisions and actions.

Such a time was the inauguration of John Kennedy in 1960.

As stirring as the event was, the language of the day was even more so for its clarity, its resonance, and its wealth of virtue.

In Ask How, Thurston Clarke reconstructs that day when we were blessed with a less pretentious inauguration, a more healing administration, and a better President.
