The deep divide in the American electorate was on display Thursday as thousands of Americans noisily protested against President Bush at his second inaugural here and at demonstrations across the nation, mainly in opposition to the war in Iraq. ***I doubt it.
The protesters made themselves heard and seen during the ceremony. One protester booed repeatedly throughout Bush's speech in a booming voice that could be heard by some on the stage behind the president, suggesting Bush could hear him too.
Because if there is one thing that we have learned in the last four years, it's that Bush can't hear dissenting voices.
