Presidential

Since I went to work today, I went outside at noon and spent my lunch break listening to the inauguration in my car.

I have to say I was quite amused that Biden replaced Cheney, then noon arrived while music was playing meaning that Bush was no longer President and then at around 7 after Obama became President.

And Roberts screws up the oath? So strange. Were I being petty I'd say that shows the quality of the Right wing justices.

I was so very pleased that he emphasized science, that he discussed this nation's history good and bad and that he included non-believers in his speech.

The only part I didn't care for came early when he talked about us being at war with terrorism, but even that was ameliorated later in the speech.

I teared up quite a few times listening to the speech and just before listening to Arethra Franklin and the classical piece. It is at times like this that I am proudest of my nation.

May this administration live up to its promise.
