13. Obama will change our country for the better more than we will ever know now - I actually
made a reservation there for breakfast on Jan 20th - months ago - thinking I might
see someone famous. Little did I know his whole family would be there. Unfortunately, I read
that there was a prayer meeting elsewhere that day at 9am - just when we have our reservation.

I have stayed there before. It was very nice - but a wee bit on the shabby side. Location
is hard to beat though. They actually check out guests before you arrive - even on a regular day. Of course, that was before I probably got on some bush hater list.
