I live in San Diego now and although I almost never cry, I have done my fair share since Nov. 4th. That's the reason 2 million people were there. It is a Historic Day. Next time it won't be, this time it is. I am so glad I was allowed to live to see it.
    Love you Nana! It's so cute that we all have the LaHohan hate and Obama
    love in common! Although I must say, yes this is awesome and amazing, I
    am not drinking this koolaid just yet.

    One of the things I loved most during the ceremony...The look on Obama's face while the John Williams piece was playing. He was moved by the music and was able to be still and be in repose.

    People always mention the way Obama speaks, but I love the way he listens. He really won me over during the campaign when I would watch the way he would listen to what McCain said, and the way he always listens carefully when a member of the public or an interviewer asks him questions.

    I heard on a CBS news program this morning, that Obama
    is doing what Lincoln did, use his adversaries for help.
    Obama called McCain minutes after he returned from
    Afghanistan to find out all he knew.
    Same reason he hired Hilary.

She said to me at least once a week before she passed how she couldn't believe a black man was going to be President. I miss her a lot each day, but very much today.
    The love and happiness on Michelle Obama's face when she looks at Mr. President Hawtness is priceless.

    2,000,000+ People in attendance =priceless
    A man of Color Sworn in as President=priceless
    A new limo that is called the BEAST=priceless

    I love this pic, because I love irony. Nothing tickles my cynical sense of humor more.

    When RFK was attorney general he authorized FBI survelliance on King......wiretaps on MLK's phones, and eavesdropping bugs in his home and office, bugs in his hotel rooms when he travelled.....this started while JFK was president- who approved of it- and was justified with the false accusation that MLK was a communist.

    ....and today he's considered a civil rights champion...because he made a few nice speeches. His actions were completely different than those speeches, but his being included in images like this are a great example of rewritten history.

    LBJ did more for civil rights than either of the Kennedy's. He should be there in place of RFK. But most Americans don't bother to learn their own history.

    and they just continue on with their toasts and everything like nothing is amiss. I do dislike Teddy Kennedy, though...
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    Its not a shock that the one person that did not say 'I' during her SOS hearing was a Republican. Just like all the senators that impeached Clinton were all Republicans. You may or may not stand them, but they are 1038402398493038402374x better than the Bushes.

    and they kept refering to Bush as the President and im like "um no he's not anymore, its Obama stfu!"
    Why the heck were you watching FOX?! On CNN, as soon it was 12AM, they referred to Bush as the ex-president. But most of the time, they'll always say 'president ____' no matter what/who it is.
