S.C. Legislature prepares invitation for Obama to speak at Capitol

South Carolina's Legislature has introduced a pair of bills that would congratulate and invite Barack Obama to address the states lawmakers from the House chambers.

From the House bill:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize and congratulate President-elect Barack Obama on his history-making victory in the 2008 United States presidential election and wish him well as he begins his term of office.

If Obama accepts, it will be interesting to see if he chooses to address the Confederate flag issue.

The congratulations bill has passed both the House and Senate, and the invite has passed the Senate and has been sent to the House.
