Nearly the entire office watched Inauguration 2009 this morning.
I thought that overall it was a good event. Not too thrilled about the Rick Warren guy, but whattahyagonnado. Gotta love Yo-Yo Ma!
I really like the way Obama has captured the “hope” motif. I think that’s really rallied a lot of people. Like him or not, he’s really mobilized voters who’ve felt alienated in the past 8 years, and speaks to people who’ve been through a lot of misfortune over the past year or so. Whether or not he’ll live up to the great expectations of the masses is yet to be seen. We’ll see what happens.
Am I the only one who was worried about an assassination attempt during the speech?
