There are those who have been concerned that the President seemed to be creating division within the people of the country. At last he has found the formula for consensus: A travelcade through the streets of Los Angeles during commute time. For pure eloquence, I give you the comments of one commuter, as quoted in the LA Times:
No matter their politics, Los Angeles residents found themselves united. "It was a beautiful thing," said Brentwood resident Myles Berkowitz, commiserating with his neighbors on Montana Avenue. "Young, old, black, white — everyone was pissed off."
President Obama chose to leave the LA fundraiser by helicopter - avoiding a repeat of the gridlock. I would suspect the LAPD were most appreciative.
