Carolyn Kilpatrick, the new President of the Congressional Black Caucus, prefers to speak boldly and dares to set forth celestial objectives. Declaring that a legislator has an obligation "to strive to create heaven on earth," she has set a lofty and inspiring tone for her coming two years of CBC leadership.
The pressure of the ambitious schedule of the incoming Democratic-led Congress prevented Kilpatrick from making a full address; however, the audience at the CBC Swearing in Ceremony found her brief statement electrifying. Everyone agreed with her son, Kwame Kilpatrick, Mayor of Detroit, who said any introduction would be anticlimactic. "My mother is like the sun. Just get out of the way and let her shine."
