Re-administration of the oath of office
I know reporters are supposed to be unbiased, but I love the line
“After flubbing his one role on Inauguration Day — administering the oath of office to Obama — Roberts traveled to the White House to re-administer the oath.”
At least they’re sure now
Although I am in Paris, I had a wonderful inauguration evening. I watched it in a crowded Canadian bar full of American students. It was the quietest I’ve ever heard a crowded bar.
The oath upset me, I already don’t like Justice Roberts, why couldn’t he get it right? This is one GOOD thing he might do in his career and he flubbed it.
I thought the speech was good, but not as moving as some of his others.
Here’s my post-mortem
Did Obama really sport a bullet-resistant suit? (that was the article I got to following links from other websites, I have no idea if it’s true or not)
The speech Obama gave Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial was also a good one…
My favorite moment (which was actually after the fact):
The first couple’s first dance to Beyonce’s cover of “At Last” (which was really quite good). I know it’s more of a love song, but I like the double meaning and how happy they look dancing.
All in all, as exciting as it would have been to be in Washington, I wouldn’t’ve gone down to the Mall, it was waaaay too cold and crowded. I mean, traffic jams at 5 am? There’s a much better view from the TV…
