Go Tammy

BARACK Obama echoed a time-honoured presidential tradition on Tuesday by laying a wreath at a memorial to mark Veterans Day in the US.

Senator Obama placed flowers at a bronze memorial at Chicago's Soldier Field with Tammy Duckworth, a disabled Iraq war veteran who serves as director of the Department of Veterans Affairs for Illinois.

The president-elect briefly bowed his head, saluted and walked away.

Only a few dozen spectators were on hand.

You know I am not a supporter of the new regime - but Tammy is amazing.
