ongressman Phil Hare today released the following statement after Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States.

"46 years ago Dr. Martin Luther King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and said: ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.' Today that dream was realized.
