Wow

Gorgeous inaugural speech. Just gorgeous. And we have now officially had a black President, before a female President even, which I would have figured would have come first. (Note I'm not complaining or anything, just a bit surprised.)

And nice choice of musicians, although it was a bit ironic that I found "Simple Gifts" to be a bit too... busy, really.

Could have done without the poet though. I mean, not any poet in general, but this particular reading did nothing for me. Well, it bored me and made me wince, but you know what I mean.

And as a non-solemn aside... when President Obama (man that feels good to type) was about to take his Oath, I swear it sounded like she was saying "the Presidential Oaf of Office" and I immediately thought "wow, what're they bringing Bush back for already?"
