"President-elect Obama's wise choice of Bishop Robinson, as well as that of Rev. Lowery and Rev. Watkins, continues to add to the historic nature of this inaugural celebration. For the first time in history, an out gay man will lead the nation in opening the transfer of power from one administration to another - and every person watching in the U.S. and around the world will have seen it. That, alone, is change."

It would have been more convincing and looked less like an afterthought if the announcement had been made in conjunction with the Rick Warren announcement, not trailing after it.
