[QUOTE=majormajor42;4020487]They say Einsenhower wrote two speeches for D-Day. One for success and the other for failure. Fortunately he was able to give the one for sucess. Carter, as we all know, had to give the one for failure to rescue the hostages in Iran. Perhaps Obama had his "defeat is an orphan" "it was my choice, the buck stops with me" speech prepared if this didn't work out. Really not that hard to imagine.
On topic: Pelosi of all people is leaving congratulatory messages for Bush too![/QUOTE]
There seems to be a lot of reaching across the aisle. I just read Obama invited Bush to join him at Ground Zero this Thursday. Bush declined. I think that was the right thing to do by both. It was Obama's way of acknowledging that Bush laid the ground work and it was Bush's was of congratulating Obama for a job well done.
