President Barack Obama is featuring eight Americans as "citizen co-chairs" of his inauguration, a new role created to highlight his first-term accomplishments with examples of lives that have either been improved by his actions or inspired his presidency. Inaugural planners say the honorees include a woman with a brain tumor who no longer is denied health care for a pre-existing condition; an autoworker who got her job back after the General Motors bailout; and a gay pilot-in-training kicked out of the Air Force before the president repealed the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Inauguration officials said Wednesday that the president has met most of the eight individuals during his first term and their inclusion in inaugural events is meant to showcase his administration's core values through real-life examples that people across the country can relate to.

I guess that's good for those 8 people..... shame he didn't do anything that helped Lady Liberty and America.

I'm surprised he didn't have some of the ones he gave cell phones to and maybe throw in a few illegals on food stamps to round the group out!

Eight people "helped" seems a little high to me. Can't see it.

She wasn't being denied health care before zerO showed up; all he did was ensure someone else would pay for that care.

Sickening. No other way to describe it.
