Hail to the Chief

Oh, it was a great day. I'm so happy that Barack Obama is my president. Really, he's my president??

Yes! He's your president, too! That is unless you are from someplace that is not the U.S. then bless you for reading this far anyway.

We had a big Inaugural Ball Bash. It was pot luck Except for the essentials. Like the Obamacakes. And the Joe Biden Jello. That was the best. The kids went WILD over it.

Some of them even sang about how wonderful the transition had gone, and how beautiful Michelle's gowns and suits were. Or maybe they just moved their mouth like they might be singing if they were old enough to know what singing was....

And some of us DID come in Ball Atire. Especially those that are young and just married. They think this is all marvelous, and of course they are absolutely right. Some of us just lag behind a little.

And in the end, if it was a really good party, the there is a phenomenal mess. Must have been a good one.

I mean really, what else could a person want? Good friends, good food, good drinks and a phenomenal president....

must be paradise!

And after all, isn't it really about honoring our leaders? Maybe "Ale to the Chief" is the wrong path to take....but it's all about hope! Thanks to all those who celebrated tonight, and all those who are solid americans. We're wickedly lucky to be here in this time, in this place. Let all be so blessed.

Well this proud citizen of Soviet Canuckistan already feels quiet blessed, as in validated, by President Barack Obama himself CC.

Needless to say I meant to write "quite blessed".

I am anything but quiet. ;-)

That typo was quite certainly not a Freudian Slip.

Thanks once again for posting that somewhat sub*versive comment Kari.

Euphoric and blessed. That's how I feel too. Here in our small town in Vermont the public library had a the inauguration projected onto a big screen in their meeting room, and 150 people crammed into the space to watch together. We applauded, whooped it up, and sang, "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, good-bye" when Bush's helicopter took off.

What an amazing time to be alive.
