So Barack Obama is President.
I just watched the inauguration sitting on my bed in Thailand with Kelly watching Aljazeera Network huddled up in my sweater and my blankets.
I wish I could have been there in DC, but it was great to watch this event.
Obama is still as always a great speaker, although to be honest I wish his speech had done more. It was good, but not so memorable. I can’t really remember any full phrases from it already… except something about harnessing the wind, water and earth for power or something along those lines. Definitely no “ask not what your country can do for you…” moments.
The Aljazeera panel is basically ripping apart his speech right now. Should of kept it shorter buddy, then at least they’d have fewer quotes to criticize.
There’s not much else to say that hasn’t been said before by hundreds of people, but it feels pretty amazing to be around in a time like this when so much is happening and so much change is trying to bust through the door. What will happen in the next few years? Watch this space I guess.
Meanwhile – just watched Obama sign those first executive orders. Who knew Obama was a leftie?? As a fellow leftie, I can’t help but like him just a little bit more for that.
Obama – you are officially hired. Let’s see what you got. Don’t let us down, that would be upsetting and just kind of awkward for you, sort of like the whole ‘Mission Accomplished’ thing. Lets learn from our predecessors there please…
