44th President of the United States

Getting up this morning for work, I felt horrible. Instead of bracing the cold weather, I decided to stay home and watch some of the Inauguration coverage. Today is the day! Millions of Americans have been waiting for this day since Martin Luther Kin Jr’s “I Have A Dream” Speech. It is estimated that 2 million people made the trip to DC for this historic event. Now, I didn’t vote for the man, but I will admit that I am watching this with a smile. As a history buff, I’d love to be standing on the National Mall and hearing first hand, President Obama’s 1st speech as our 44th President. While watching the coverage, I wonder what is going on in George W. Bush’s head. This must be a hard day for him. Soon, he’ll be leaving Washington DC and making his way to Waco, Texas where he will reside. I’m sure our country will be better off with Obama as our President. Only time will tell, I guess. Everyone will be watching very closely during his 1st 100 days in office. Many analysts say you can tell a lot about how a President will do while in office during that time period. The rest of the day is jam packed for President Obama, Michelle, and their 2 daughters. After the swearing in ceremony, they have a Luncheon in the Capital Building, followed by Inaugural Parade, and later this evening the Obama’s have to make an appearance at 10 very prestigious balls. Sounds like a very busy afternoon/evening for the Obama’s. I’m very glad I’m not them!
