History in the Making

January 20, 2009 | NeW Staff

Today is a day that will go down in history: the inauguration of
America’s first black President. Millions have flocked to the nation’s
capital to be present for the swearing in of Barack Obama. With so much
excitement, it is easy to forget what our country faces: a devastating
recession, a continuing war on terror, and a country polarized by one
of the most heated elections in history.

Those on the Left anxiously
await the arrival of Obama’s proposed policies and his plans for
change.  At the same time, those on the Right have regrouped after
November’s loss and work to reassert conservative principles. The air
of disappointment by conservatives could not be hidden.

But the question remains, how should the conservative react and respond to today’s ceremonies and celebrations? David Horowitz in
his recent Townhall column encourages conservatives to recognize what
good has come from the election, while at the same time staying true to
conservative principles. He writes,

“It is conservatives who should be
especially appreciative of the dual nature of the American presidency,
as conceived by the Founders…What matters today is that many Americans
have begun to join their country’s cause, and conservatives should
celebrate that fact and encourage it.”
