Some of my favorite highlights… *[Full text HT: ABC NEWS] “America is a friend of each nation… we are ready to lead once more.” “We will not apologize for our way of life.” “Our patch work heritage is a strength not a weakness.” “A new era of responsibility…this is the price and promise of citizenship…” Any thoughts?

I am excited about a new president and the historical nature of how today will represent hope in a post-racial America. In plain English that means we just elected our first black president which is a big deal. Also, I like that our new president can actually put a few words together. No offense to W, but Obama is a rarely gifted communicator. What are people doing to celebrate? Some will buy cool memorabilia like this action figure to celebrate. I know what I am doing. I intend to celebrate the inauguration live and come in a bit late to the office to do so. CNN will be my choice because I like Anderson Cooper and their HD. How are you viewing this historical event? Doing it TV, online, TIVO, or smart phone?
