Inauguration Open Thread; Update: Watch Obama's Address
Hey Gang. Liveblogging this historic moment today. Please let us know your feelings in the comments below.
The crowds definitely booed Dick and Bush (albeit there was some cheering too).
Obama walked in with an incredible calmness.
Rick Warren is up. He didn't get much in the way of applause.
Warren wasn't too offensive, though definitely didn't leave much room in his invocation for other religions (ie, a whole lot Jesus talk).
Aretha Franklin is now up. She got a lot more love from the crowd than Warren.
Franklin sounds beautiful. Let freedom ring indeed.
Go Joe! We've got a new Vice President. Which means Cheney is no longer the VP. Not to wear my heart on my sleeve or anything ... but HOORAY!
Yo-Yo Ma, Perlman and company are playing beautifully on this cold day in Washington DC ... I love how much art is featured at inaugurations. Stirring.
