De Blasio to be sworn in by Bill Clinton

Clinton Global Initiative
NEW YORK (AP) - Bill de Blasio will be sworn in as mayor of New York City by former President Bill Clinton.

The Democrat will be inaugurated as the 109th mayor of the nation's largest city during a ceremony Wednesday on the City Hall steps.

His transition team announced Saturday that he will be sworn in by the former president. De Blasio worked in Clinton's administration in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Clinton will use a Bible once owned by another former president, Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The de Blasio transition team says former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton also will attend the New Year's Day ceremony.

De Blasio managed her successful 2000 Senate campaign.

De Blasio is succeeding Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is leaving office after three terms.

People will vote for Kankles just because she is a woman. Big mistake. We should vote for people because they can do the job not because of race, gender, looks, or even party affiliation. So many voted for Barry because he is black, actually half black. We ended up with a Liar-in Chief, a giant waster & spender of our tax dollars and a President that ended up not being that smart. He's just a good reader of other peoples words. We have to start voting for character, honesty, integrity, guts and American loyalty. Then maybe we won't get stuck with a sorry example of a President we have now. Kankles doesn't have one single bit of any of the fore mentioned qualities. She's just a woman. A woman would be fine. But it has to be the right woman, just as it should be the right man.

I take great pleasure in aquainting you of the facts not the distortions presented by the New Republican radical arm of my Party. Here they are.
Following diplomatic negotiations dating back to 1986 among the three nations, the leaders met in San Antonio, Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it.

what are you... a communist?... Repulsive republicans always wanting to divide in order to conquer!!!.. This nation has had enough of you liars, cheaters,adulters and ungodly racists. You have disgraced this great country for long enough now... so get used to the democrat rule where every american is enitiled to a decent life of freedom to make his/herown path and where the rich government welfare thieves are NOT in control of everyone else... Thank you President Obama for your service to this greta country... If you were allowed a third term.. you would flat out be re elected to it!!
