Another point I'd like to make is the fact that the 10,000 African-Americans in attendance give or take about 50, gave Bill Clinton a long standing ovation upon his entry and departure. And gave applause during his talk. We afforded more respect to former President Clinton than to the current president.
I know I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but Clinton got those applause because he deserved them. The only thing Bush deserves is a swift kick in the teeth, and no body knows that better than African-Americans. He should have done what he did with the NAACP in 2004 and just declined the invitation. Or, we could have learned our lesson and not invited him at all. I don't think Ms. King would have missed him.
