    Moderators: Please feel free to add names and dates as selections are made and I'm not available.

    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

    Barack and friends are strategic and I expect that good decisions will be made to appoint the correct people to the correct positions.

    Today's Horatio Alger story...possibly. He's a little long in the tooth at 80- Obama would likely pick someone younger?
