Why am I doing this?

I really had higher expectations for our next President.

This is an piece from a story on abc.com about the inauguration. I had hoped Obama was for the people and not for the executives. I guess the "average Joe" does not pay his salary - the salary that allows him to send his children to private schools anyway!! This must be how the bankers say thank you for being allowed their bonuses.

The biggest group of donors were none other than the recently bailed-out Wall Street executives and employees.

"The finance sector is well represented, despite its recent troubles," Ritsch said. "Those who worked in finance still managed to pull together nearly $7 million for the inauguration."

The donors will get some of the best seats in the house for the inauguration, as well as admittance to some of the best balls and other events.
