Ann Arbor gets presidential
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.
