Bush asks Americans to be
'citizens, not spectators.
Continued from Page1A
He also urged Americans to
actively participate in government, a
message not lost in the thousands of
protesters who traveled to the capital
for the inaugural ceremonies.
"I ask you to be citizens," Bush
said. "Citizens, not spectators; citi-
zens, not subjects; responsible citi-
zens, building communities of
service and a nation of character."
The president vowed to "reclaim
America's schools," reform Social
Security and overhaul Medicare but
received the loudest cheers during
his 14-minute address after declaring
that he would reduce taxes.
Michigan Secretary of State Can-
dice Miller, a Republican, called
Bush's address "very optimistic."
"It was certainly a vision for
America," Miller said on her way to
Michigan's inaugural ball Saturday
night at the Washington Hilton
Hotel, one of eight balls at which
Bush and his wife made brief
appearances throughout the evening.
Miller said it shouldn't be long
before Bush makes good on his
promises to foster cooperation and
bipartisanship on Capitol Hill.
"I think the American people are
going to see him very quickly reach-
ing his hand out across the aisle and
unite the country," she said.
Minutes after Bush was sworn in,
his first order of business was to
sign the paperwork formally nomi-
nating members of his Cabinet.
Later that afternoon, the Senate in a
voice vote approved seven of his
nominees, including former GOP
Sen. Spencer Abraham of Michigan
as Secretary of Energy.
The voice vote ensured Sen.
Hillary Clinton of New York would
not miss her first recorded roll-call
vote while flying with her husband
from Andrews Air Force Base to
their home state after Bush's inau-
Bush also quickly blocked many
of the last-minute executive orders
issued by President Clinton the pre-
vious day so the new administration
has time to review them.
Bush was sworn in by Chief Jus-
tice William Rehnquist, one of the
five members of the Supreme Court
who voted against allowing more
recounts in Florida. Behinid Bush, in
addition to his wife, Laura, and his
twin 19-year-old daughters, Jenna,
who attends the University of Texas,
and Barbara, a student at Yale Uni-
versity, were Bush's parents, former
President George Bush and his
wife, Barbara, and the new presi-
dent's brother, Jeb Bush, who gov-
erns the state that ultimately
decided the election.
Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow,
the Lansing Democrat who narrow-
ly defeated Abraham in November,
acknowledged that she would have
rather see the vice president pledg-
ing to "preserve, protect and defend
the Constitution." But Stabenow
noted that she would be taking
Bush's call for bipartisanship to
"We have to respect that this is
the new president's day," Stabenow
"For me, it's really an opportinity
to build bridges," she said.
Republicans welcomed Bush's
address as an indication thzt, his
term in the White House will !ignal
a new era for the federal gode rn-
"I think he touched on uany
things - I think he's trying to bring
unity in this country," state Rep.
Laura Toy of Livonia said, "and I
think he will, by his experience'both
in Texas and as a human being in
the family that he comes from.'
Despite forecasts of sleet and
snow for Inauguration Day, Bush
gave his address in only light rain.
There had been talk of naving
his swearing-in ceremony indoors,
as was done in 1985 to begin
Ronald Reagan's second term. The
Inaugural Parade, which was 'can-
celed that same year due to the
weather, also went on as planned,
although the president and first
lady remained inside their limou-
sine for most of the trip down
Pennsylvania Avenue to the White

Inaugural protesters, supporters face off

Participants at the rally, organized by the Inter-
national Action Center, brought with them an
array of causes - but election concerns were the
10 "Bush, with all of his corporate money, bought
the election," said Kate Palmer, a freshman at
Wesleyan College in Ohio, as she was surround-
ed-by signs carrying reading "Hail to the Thief"
WWe're not (protesting) for the liberal loss and
tbt. conservative gain, were doing it for all the
atrcities that happened," Palmer said.
Dne protester, who prefers to be known as "Pos-
sura," said he wants to see the Electoral College
d ished. "I'm not about burning down Washing-
T"n, D.C. I just want to see democracy come back
to-the election," he said.
Protesters also clashed with officers at Freedom
Plaza during the parade. Police stopped the motor-
cade for a few minutes before rushing it past,
bringing the Secret Service agents to a sprint.
Thousands attended another morning rally at
Dupont Circle, north of the White House. At the
site, which was not on the parade route, speakers
including National Organization for Women Presi-
dent Patricia Ireland rallied the crowds.
"There's a lot of anger about the way the
Supreme Court usurped the election,' said Prince-
ton University graduate student John McCoy, a
Texas native. "I didn't vote for him for governor,
Vassar College senior Jonathan Berger said he
does not believe Bush was actually elected presi-
dent. "This is the way the majority of the people in
this country voted," Berger said protesters support
for Democratic candidate Al Gore.
Police and Secret Service agents were not the
only people to come to altercations with the pro-
testers. Many Bush supporters jeered those who
were carrying signs.
As South Carolina resident Phillip Parron stood
outside the inauguration site holding a sign col-
demning the death penalty, a man leaving the cere-
mony shouted, "I have a word for you: It's called
pathetic." When asked how he responds to such
comments, Parron said, "You just smile and nod.
We know justice is on our side."
Many Bush supporters sitting in stands across
the street from the protesters in front of the
National Archives were very vocal in their opposi-
tion, cheering every time the police brought in
"I think that's a violation of my civil rights,"
Ray Meadows, a Bush supporter from Waco,
Texas, said of the loud rally across the street. "I
mean, I know they've got civil rights, but I've
come 1,500 miles for this. ... It was just wrong."
For those who came to enjoy Bush's inaugura-
tion, the protesters weren't always a nuisance. "I'm
a product of the sixties, so I don't mind protesters,"
Michigan Secretary of State Candice Miller said.
Whatever cause fueled their passion, for many
of the protesters they felt it was something they
had to do. "Every issue that's being touched upon
is important for me, so it's impossible for me not
to be here, said Kevin Lamkins, an employee at
the University of Hartford.
