I took the day off and watched the Inauguration Coverage at home all day. It was thrilling. It was my first time to watch an Inauguration. I just had never cared before. Now I care, and I am paying careful attention to Obama's first hundred days, aren't you?

Watching the inauguration was incredibly moving for me. I imagine there won't be one in my lifetime that comes anywhere near what a lot of us experienced that Tuesday.
