HISTORY! Obama Becomes President: "A New Birth of Freedom"
A new era. Much more than simply a new President. The first African-American president, and all that means. The most eloquent, intelligent, balanced president in a long time. Yes, other Presidents were good, each in their way. But there's something different about Barack Hussein Obama. And everyone can feel it.
Almost two million people watching. In total joy. Two miles of people, seen from space.
The moment so immense almost everyone is at a loss for words. And I am no exception. But President Obama is not at a loss for words, coming through with power and eloquence, righting the wrongs with conviction and truth. At this critical moment, he inspires all the right things. Let's hope and pray this hope and promise fulfills continuously...
