Presidential Inauguration 2009
New president. Now, see, this is what I don’t get. Everyone keeps saying that we are “making history”.
News flash, EVERY SINGLE TIME we get a new president, it MAKES HISTORY.
Granted, some are more spectacular than others, but still. A new phrase is needed I feel.
That said, I really enjoyed watching the inauguration. I liked seeing ALL of the people who had come out to see Obama sworn in, and I loved that Aretha Franklin sang. And I LOVED her hat. That was some hat. I watched it in a class I was subbing for. I thought his speech was quite nice, and it was actually a joy to hear the President speak without feeling like I needed to slap my forehead because he had just said something stupid.
Now to wait and see if anything Obama said in his speech happens.
