Ann Arbor gets presidential

I know traffic is going to be terrible. I know I won't be able to eat at an area restaurant without waiting for three hours first. I understand it might even rain.
In spite of all of this, I couldn't be more excited about President Barack Obama coming to Ann Arbor on Saturday.
To consider the magnitude and historicity of his office, one can't help but be moved in some meaningful way when the sitting US President is in our town.
I know current political positioning seems to require either a 'love em' or 'hate em' attitude toward politicians of all varieties, but regardless of his agenda, Obama is our president.
There's only been 44 of these men throughout our national history, and many residents and visitors will get to see one of them.
Those who were able to see President Bill Clinton as well in Ypsilanti in the late 90s can say they've seen two.
So, welcome Mr. President. Don't forget to stop at Zingerman's.
