Congratulations, Mr. President
As for his speech, there was no way it could live up to this historic moment of the first black man taking the oath of offfice, and it didn't.
The speech didn't soar, but it was fine.
Drudge says Obama "flubbed" the oath but it was hard to tell if it wasn't the Chief Justice who messed it up. Still counts though.
It was great to see the Obamas and Bushes together as, per tradition, the new president saw the old one off.
There was laughter and there were hugs all around.
It was easy to see it was W. who was cracking jokes, keeping the situation light and fun. Good guy that Obama is, he followed George's lead.
A very nice moment.
UPDATE: Drudge now includes Chief Justice Roberts as a flubber.
