Chief Justice, new president get a do-over

"Out of an abundance of caution," and after several experts said it might be a good idea, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and the new president met at the White House today for a do-over.
"Are you ready to take the oath?" Mr. Roberts said.

"I am," Mr. Obama replied. "And we're going to do it very slowly."
I think this whole "abundance of caution" thing could be a great idea. Imagine, if some people in the Bush administration had gone over some of their snap judgments and knee-jerk reactions "out of an abundance of caution," we might not be in the mess we're in today.
