I think its very exciting for the City of San Francisco to be welcoming President Obama... Despite the differences in opinion .. I believe a great deal of Bay Area Residents are in support of our new President and appreciate his motivation and determination to change our country for the better... I hope to shake his hand and take a picture if security and time restraints allow it... Yes We Can!!! Charlie "Boy" Kane

MR PRESIDENT OBAMA, YES WE CAN DO IT!!!
