* Aretha shouldn't have attempted the key change.
* Fine speech.
* That poem should've been read by someone else; the author herself sounded like one of those computer voices like Windows Narrator or something.
* The people singing the anthem sounded way goofy.  Like, Christmas Carol goofy.
* That guy who delivered the benediction.... I WISH I COULD HI FIVE HIM RIGHT NOW.  "Where a red man can get ahead man".  Fucking hell, I haven't laughed that hard since I was 6.
* Upon seeing Bush get into his chopper, the words "Good Riddance" came to mind.
* Being the cynic I am, I have a gut feeling that even a charismatic fella like Obama won't be able to do all the things you'd expect after a speech like that.  Still, it was (for once) a world leader type person with a positive message.  If everybody did that, the world would be in better shape.
* Obama was getting uppity at the start of taking the oath.  He totally interrupted the other guy.

It was actually the Chief Justice who screwed up.

I kinda hoped that Obama would show up to the inauguration wearing Air Jordans, a wife-beater, bling-bling, and a giant clock like Flava.

That would scare the shit out of whitey.

Obama's voice irritates the hell out of me. I don't get why people think he's charismatic.

Well, I mean, compared to John McCain...
No, Obama gave a great speech, just as he always has. I don't know, things seem to be looking up.

Things seem to be looking up? Have you seen WallStreet today? There is no Obama boost in the Stock market. Things are not looking up.



Obama is a joke. I doubt he'll get us out of this Bush mess.

someone should of given Aretha Franklin the same song sheet as the band was playing coz she was definately NOT singing 'God Save The Queen' to the tune played.
however it was nice to hear OUR national anthem played at your event,who says you aint part of our colony :-]
ps,i had a feeling either Barry O'Bama or the judge bloke would forget the words somewhere,just wish i had put that £10 on it when i had the chance :-[

I didn't watch the inauguration.  Like 90% of the American public, I had to work.  Had it been a normal day I might have been able to stream it online, but I was in the middle of a board meeting at the time so no such luck.  I did just finally manage to get to watch his speech post-oath.  Good speech overall.  And of course he's bitten off more than he can chew with that speech...they ALL do that.  I don't think there's been one President yet who has managed to deliver on everything they promised after they took the oath.  There has always been a certain amount of fantasy and wishful thinking in politics.  If they didn't promise us the moon, no one would give a damn. 

And Joxer, I'm assuming that Aretha must have sang "My Country Tis of Thee"...which if memory serves me correctly was written as a giant "F" you to Britain.  Our national anthem may be ridiculously difficult to sing (and I'm personally of the belief that you should be required to audition to sing the Star Spangled Banner anywhere and if you can't sing it in one key, you are forbidden to sing it EVER), but at least it's constant and we don't have to change the words based on who is in office at the time :-P

Obama's speech was brilliant.

The end of Reverend Lowrey's benediction was at the same time a disgrace and a tribute to the late, great Johnnie Cochran.

We Will, We Will Barack You!

Everyone at school tuned in to the inauguration!!!
It was great, no p.e. or French! They made 2nd period longer. :D
Anyways, I thought it was awesome! I believe Obama will change things, if not start changing them.
I have faith in him. I hope he does something about our schools (since we ran outta a bunch of money which affects me!), the jobs, new resources for energy, war, our crappy economy, and healthcare.
I will look forward to the next 4 years... [img=/images/smiley/msn/thumbs_up.gif][/img]

[img=/images/smiley/msn/tounge_smile.gif][/img] Three things I will remember from this whole Obama presidential stuff:
1. Michelle Obama's dress looked like piss. (and who mixes pink with orange?!?!)
2. When Yo-Yo Ma performed, I announced to my second period: Hey look! Yo Mama is playing!
3. When I saw Barack Obama and John McCain on WWE Raw last year. McCain said the audience were McCainiacs and Obama said: Do you smell what Barack is cookin?

XDDDDD cannot believe I actually witnessed history.
