Presidential Intervention

I’m glad that Obama has stepped into the controversy surrounding Henry Louis Gates Jr.’s arrest.

It would have been easy to stay on the sidelines, and let it be a local issue. Having them both over for a White House picnic on Thursday makes it seem as though everyone is friends.

It’s good to have a president who’s willing to do the right thing, after he waded in with his opinion last week (saying the Cambridge Police Department acted “stupidly.”).

There’s no better way to backtrack than to throw a picnic.
