“The power under the constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can and undoubtedly will, be recalled.”

~ George Washington (1787)

A change

Earlier, Obama declined a request from a prominent Catholic cardinal to say a prayer at the Democratic National Convention next month.  Cardinal Dolan made the offer after agreeing to giving a benediction at the Republican National Convention.

That's changed.  Cardinal Dolan is now delivering prayers at both conventions.
