Ron Reagan on presidential transitions

I was just watching Ron Reagan, son of the late president, speaking on MSNBC about the meeting to take place shortly between President Obama and President-elect Trump. 

Some thoughts on this: While I might attend a NOT MY PRESIDENT rally in NYC Saturday and do not like one bit the outcome of the Electoral College tally of the election, the fact is that Mr. Trump will be president. For all us. Like it or not. 

So, there is certainly something awe-striking about these two men meeting as members of a very exclusive club. 

Ron's comments on this were rather notable. In particular, he said that Mr. Trump, upon being read in to actual, full security reports beginning now, will suddenly be met face-to-face with the awesome responsibilities and challenges he will inherit on January 20, 2017. 

Ron said that even being a two-term governor of the largest state in the union was not adequate preparation for the transition when his own father faced it. It will be, whether Mr. Trump admits to it or not, a most humbling experience. I suspect it will provide a rather startling shock to his system.

Stay tuned. I expect his head to spin.

No doubt, the Obamas and the Bidens will be most gracious in welcoming the Trumps and Pences.
