Bush's Chance to Win Over the World

Cancel the Inaugural Balls, Donate Money to Victims of Tsunami

You know what, It'd really win me over-and probably a lot of people in the world who are currently critical of our President, if he were to do something big to show the world his vision of Compassionate Conservatism. Here's what I'd do if I were him.

1) Cancel the elaborate inaugural balls (they're all boring anyway)
2) Take the private money raised to pay for them (somewhere around $80 million) and use it for relief efforts in Asia.

He could have a less showy, humble inauguration, which I think would actually boost his image within and outside the U.S. Yeah, maybe we're rich enough to send a ton of money to help out and have a really fancy inaugural, but think of the symbolism, the marketing potential and the good will this could build. Bush is the only one who could pull it off without look like an opportunist to boot.
