The Presidential Inaugural Committee is announcing that a diverse group of everyday Americans – from a Ford worker to an Iraq veteran to a military parent to Vice President-elect Biden's Amtrak conductor – will join President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden on their Whistle Stop Tour from Philadelphia to Washington the Saturday before the Inauguration.
From the PIC: 'These everyday Americans from all walks of life have made extraordinary contributions to the life of this country - the worker who became a champion for workers' rights, the soldier who became an advocate for servicemen and women suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; those who have lost their jobs and struggle bravely to cope in economic turmoil, and those who work tirelessly to make real the dream of a better future for their children. 'Each one of these families has their own remarkable story to add to our American story, and we're thrilled they've agreed to join us as we travel to Washington,' said Josh Earnest, PIC Communications Director.'
It'll be 40 members of 16 families from 15 states, who learned of their good luck in the last few days – the last one, yesterday.
