    is the fact that all three people in it achieved their status not through family connections or access to the powerful, but through their own hard work. President Obama, Vice President Biden, and SCOTUS nominee Sotomayor have gotten to where they are via meritocracy, an American ideal that all too often is a theory in practice.

    I hope we see more people begin to populate the government who have worked hard to achieve success by using their intelligence and their talents.  

    On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. --Barack Obama
