Impressive


This was the first presidential inaugural I've ever paid attention to, and I am so very glad I did. It was funny that Roberts and Obama fumbled the oath, but Obama didn't fumble on his inaugural address. It was short on specifics, but then again that's not what the inaugural address is about. It was about hope, and inspiration, and getting the nation's spirit up, and it succeeded beautifully. And now that the pomp is finished(well, at least for most of us) it's time to get back to the business of putting this country back together. Do I think we can do it? With Obama and his cabinet leading...yes we can.

Obama did not actually fumble the oath. Roberts did. Obama hesitated, as he knew Roberts was saying it incorrectly...

I wasn't sure who's screw up it was. It seemed like it was Roberts, but I figured I'd cover my bases. ;-)

I've been watching the inauguration coverage most of the day (until I had to go to sleep, at which point I started taping it). The more I see and hear him, the more faith I have in him.

What I love about his speeches is that there is always the most elegant bit of defiance in them.
