"We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist." - My favourite part of the speech... Just hits the right note

Man, it's still so surreal and awesome hearing Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw saying "President Obama". On a side note, Ted Kennedy looks fantastic and healthy.

I had a phone shift that started at noon. I unplugged my phone, lol.



I live in a very old-school, Republican, religious conservative area and work at a small, somewhat conservative private college and yet I think every class was watching today instead of having class. We got a gazillion support calls about how to get cable feed through the projectors in the classrooms. We have a 42" plasma display mounted on the wall in my office that usually has phone and server stats but we changed it to TV so we could watch.

Proud of America again!

What's next on the schedule today? I'm still recording it on CNN. Didn't know what was the best channel to watch, so I stuck with them

This isn't an inauguration. This whole spectacle is the exact kind of thing the Revolutionary War was fought to eliminate.

It was fought to gain American independence of dictatorship-like monarchy and establish a democracy. Last I checked, Obama was still elected by the people, his term is still finite, and there are still checks and balances in place.
