Just back from running errands, putting away groceries etc. Some thoughts.
The line at the post office was long since the stamp machine was broken. I couldn’t help but notice the photos of then President Bush and VP Cheney in the entrance way. I don’t know if those came down at Noon but they were up as of 11:15 and some people in line didn’t like it.
Noticed that Biden was sworn in first with a flourish in the middle so technically for about 5 min Bush was president with Biden as his VP.
To answer the question I was at a traffic light eating a Big Mac.
John Roberts is a great jurist and a fine supreme court justice but COME ON how do you blow the oath of office? He won’t live that down in a hurry.
I stayed parked at Romano’s mkt listening to the speech, not bad some minor weak spots but not bad.
Thought the crowd might Boo when he thanked President Bush.
I noted that the snow drifts didn’t instantly melt nor did the ground open up and swallow the country whole. This must have been a great shock to two very different groups of people.

The two local stations didn’t carry Rush’s critique or Rush at all. I would have been interesting to hear it in real time but I’ll have 4 years at least to hear and or Join in Rush’s Critique of President Obama.
Joe Biden’s wife is really good looking, I can’t help but like the man. He’s wrong on a lot but I bet o na personal level he can be counted on.
Has a mother-in-law ever moved into the White House?
Obama is greeting McCain and Gore. McCain doesn’t seem upset that he lost, you can still see resentment on Gore’s face. (Saw that on Kerry’s wife’s face to in the crowd.)
Watching him work the crowd he looks good and confident. I don’t care for the idolatry of his fans in the media but he SHOULD be confident he can make a difference. If he wasn’t he wouldn’t be going for the job.
Starting tomorrow the rubber hits the road we will now see if he can
cut down the mightiest tree in the forest with a Herring govern.
If he can win the war on terror and turn the economy around he’ll be a winner in my book.
