Obama Picks First Inaugural Guest
Cynthia Russell, a builder from Newberry, Florida, has been selected as the first of 10 winners of an essay contest held by the Presidential Inaugural Committee. She and a guest will be invited to the welcome ceremony, Barack's swearing-in, the Inaugural Parade, and our Neighborhood Inaugural Ball, the PIC announced.
She wrote: "I'm a single woman who has been building homes for over 18 years. I've supported myself and have been able to help out my mother from time to time. Now I find myself wondering how much longer I can hold on and be able to pay my bills and keep the doors open for business. Barack gives me hope. Hope that 2009 will truly bring change to Americans who find themselves in this mess with me."
