Could America Have A Date Night?

When the last occupant of the Presidency took the oath of office in 2005, I wanted, in my brain, to hear the words "Do you solemnly swear.." be followed by "to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?"

This inauguration, when our new President said "I do" I fully expected John Roberts to say "You may now kiss the bride." We just married this dude.

To see him dancing with Michelle at the different inauguration balls, their love apparent and open to all, was to share a love. Yes, America, we are in love. We just got married to this family.

Do we get a date night? It's worked really for Barack and Michelle in their own marriage. Can America have a date night? Could Barack read to us of the Combination at Exeter and what it means to America today? Could Michelle talk about what it means to become a woman lawyer? We don't need to see the kids, even though we love them. But here is Barack's chance to share with America the things he loves, like the Constitution, the keelson of our national creation, and to teach us all the stuff about our social contract that we missed in school.

Teacher?
