The Inauguration


You can watch the inauguration of Barack Obama as 44th President of the United States live on CNN.

Comments are open for observations on the singing, the prayers, the poem, the (huge) crowds, the swearing-in, the parade and, not least, Obama’s inaugural address– and the “expert” media commentary on all of those.

Can I ask people to be reasonably respectful until Obama takes office and actually starts doing stuff? (OK, you don’t have to be so respectful of the media commentary.) I would have made the same request if it was John McCain instead of Obama who was being sworn in today. Thanks.
