    I hope she doesn't. If she does, she'll always be known as the one who broke an almost 80 year tradition. Then we'll hear about it every time she goes to an event. It'll be more stress than she needs.

    This administration is all about firsts!

    No, I do not think it should be dipped...just like I don't think the POTUS should bow before anyone...especially those who weren't elected by their people.

    No dipping! If she does, she should be removed from the team immediately.

    All indications point to a patriotic Mariel, the flag bearer.

    Besides, unless she has a house in England, she probably plans to be well-received here.

    Good for her. The Navy doesn't dip their colors for other countries either.

    Proving, at least to me, that patriots in this country still exist. :patriot:
