This peaceful transfer of power is one of the hallmarks of a true democracy. And ensuring that this transition is as smooth as possible is a priority for the rest of my presidency.When President Bush makes something a "priority" of his presidency, somehow that something just never quite works out!
Catching Osama bin Laden was a priority.
Bringing stability to Iraq was a priority.
More recently, getting an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan in place was a priority.
We can only hope that the peaceful transfer of power will occur as planned - despite it being a priority!
Have a nice day.
