A Big Party on the White House Lawn, Andrew Jackson Style

First, big party on the White House lawn like Andrew Jackson.  Second: Oval Office speech explaining the nation’s four biggest problems and his solutions.  Announce public meetings once a year around the country for Cabinet secretaries, starting with Hillary in Utah.  “This is a Presidency of all the people.” 

Biggest problems: economy, energy, the Mediterranean-to-India issue: Israel/Saudi Arabia/Syria/ Palestine/Iraq/Iran/Afghanistan/Pakistan, and education.

Issue a pardon for crimes committed, or that may have been committed, by W.  Let Bush’s people blame a pardoned man for their crimes; destroy Bush, on the record, forever.

Call for a new era of friendship and cooperation with our neighbors.
