Laura Bush To Speak At Lincoln Ceremony

News today from the Courier-Journal of Louisville, Kentucky that Laura Bush is going to speak at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site on Tuesday February 12 during the kickoff ceremonies for the Lincoln Bicentennial celebration. President Bush had been invited to speak, but apparently has some schedule conflicts in Washington, D.C. that day.

A pity, really, since the president and his supporters are trying all sorts of contortions in order to somehow equate his legacy to that of Lincoln's. What a golden opportunity he's missing.

Agree. What a shame that the sitting prez cannot speak here. You don't salute the man, you salute the uniform. This celebration of American's greatest citizen should be of utmost importance.
