Liberia's New Lady President
Newly elected Liberian president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf was sworn in today and the ceremony was attended by First Lady Laura Bush and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Liberia is Africa's oldest republic and was established in 1847 by freed American slaves. Hopefully President Sirleaf will work out better than Charles Taylor, who was a complete disappointment.
