Continuity of Government

We all have something to be thankful for as President Bush starts his second term. It seems that few people give much thought to how smooth the transition of power is in our nation. True, President Bush was re-elected in November, thus there was no real transition to make today. But with three former U.S. presidents attending today's inauguration, it seems that our leaders are safe from such calamities as this.

Our country is the greatest nation the world has ever seen. Although we have problems (and sometimes huge problems with elections), the fact that we don't have to worry about our candidates being poisoned by political foes or external forces influencing election results speaks volumes about the wisdom of James Madison and the other signers of The Constitution. And even when our leaders do bad things, like Nixon or Clinton, the process works.
